The Pro Bono Partnership provides free, direct legal services to Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey nonprofits that serve the disadvantaged. In 2016, the partnership worked for 34 nonprofits in Greater New Haven, donating more than 1,000 hours of legal services valued at more than $400,000. Annually, it works with about 700 nonprofit clients in the three states.
“Smaller institutions often do not have a budget for legal fees without impacting their services,” says Pro Bono Partnership Director of Marketing Mindi Lund. “The Pro Bono Partnership has about 1300 volunteers in the tri-state area. These are attorneys that bill at hundreds of dollars per hour. The nonprofits get that for free.” Read more about the work of the ProBono Partnership.
