In addition to being renowned for our achievements in the courtroom, we are also renowned for - and proud of - our philanthropic contributions to the community, which have been recognized by a number of organizations.
The firm actively promotes and contributes to charities and nonprofit organizations. It has also established and funded scholarships, fellowships and endowments at local and national mentoring programs, high schools, and universities, including all six Chicago law schools. Our partners, associates and staff "give back" by serving on Boards, raising funds, tutoring, and lending a hand wherever needed for a variety of charities and nonprofit organizations, including Misericordia, Center for Disability and Elder Law, Access Living, Mercy Home for Boys and Girls, the Legal Assistance Foundation of Metropolitan Chicago, and Catholic Charities. In 2006, we established a pro bono department, which helps the indigent and elderly with legal matters that affect their day-to-day quality of life.
