Pro Bono Newsletters

Welcome to Pro Bono Matters

The practice of law—especially in a large law firm such as ours—is a privilege that carries profound societal responsibilities. Our nationally recognized pro bono practice upholds Dykema’s highest values and demonstrates the Firm’s commitment to the communities in which we live and work. By sharing our knowledge and experience, we provide equal access to justice for those with unmet legal needs.

In the following pages you see how we apply these ideals in our practice and across the country to produce outstanding results for those who often need but do not receive services.
