Why do lawyers volunteer?
"The basic responsibility for providing legal services for those unable to pay ultimately rests upon the individual lawyer, and personal involvement in the problems of the disadvantaged can be one of the most rewarding experiences in the life of a lawyer." Comment , Rule 6.1. Pro Bono Publico Service, Indiana Rules of Professional Conduct.
Our Indiana lawyers take this advice very seriously. They went to law school in part to be able to help folks who have important legal problems. They are very generous with their time and their talents because you need their help and they care that our legal system is available to everybody in a meaningful and helpful way.
