Patch Media

In a recent article for Patch Media, Special Counsel and Director of Stroock’s national pro bono program, the Public Service Project, Kerry T. Cooperman, discusses his continued commitment to pro bono work.

In this role, Kerry is empowered to connect attorneys across the country with opportunities to address social, economic, and racial injustice through a range of legal services. He tells Patch this work is an extension of a passion he had since law school, where he got involved in juvenile justice, helping those in the juvenile justice system. After law school, he saw first-hand the legal needs underserved communities had while teaching at a charter school.

"Being inside an inner-city Baltimore public school, and seeing the amount of need and how underserved the students and families were, I knew that would be part of my practice,” Kerry states. "I think all attorneys have a responsibility to provide pro bono counsel to communities that can't afford it when they can. These are our neighbors, and some of them cannot afford counsel or competent counsel for basic human needs."

City & State New York recently named Kerry to The Responsible 100, an annual list of New Yorkers invested in community improvement.
