Dykema Listed in the State Bar of Michigan’s Pro Bono Circle of Excellence

August 5, 2016

Dykema is proud to announce that the Pro Bono Initiative of the State Bar of Michigan recognized the firm in its Pro Bono Circle of Excellence for 2016. According to the State Bar of Michigan, for a firm to be included in the Pro Bono Circle of Excellence, it must have demonstrated full compliance with the Voluntary Pro Bono Standard adopted by the State Bar’s Representative Assembly. Full compliance is demonstrated through the provision of pro bono services rendered collectively through donations of reduced-fee or no-fee work, financial contributions to legal aid programs eligible to receive funding from the Access to Justice Fund, or a combination of both.

Dykema was recognized at the Leadership level, which means that on average, each attorney has contributed at least 30 hours of counsel or representation to low-income individuals and families or to organizations that provide legal services, or has donated at least $500 to a nonprofit program organized to deliver civil legal services to low-income individuals.
