MASLON PROUDLY MEETS THE 2015 PRO BONO CHALLENGE BY THE PRO BONO INSTITUTE
Maslon is pleased to announce that it has met the 2015 Pro Bono Institute's Law Firm Pro Bono Challenge®. The Law Firm Pro Bono Challenge is a commitment made by major law firms around the country in which firms must devote three percent of their billable hours or a set number of hours per attorney to the provision of pro bono legal services to low-income and disadvantaged individuals, families, and nonprofit groups. The Challenge is administered by the Law Firm Pro Bono Project of the Pro Bono Institute.

More than 65% of Maslon's attorneys participated in qualifying pro bono work in 2015, helping the firm exceed the Law Firm Pro Bono Challenge requirement of committing three percent of the firm's billable hours to giving back to the community. In total, Maslon attorneys contributed 3,913 of their hours to pro bono service in 2015.

"We're very proud of our firm's pro bono achievement this past year. We believe such work is our moral and ethical responsibility, is fundamental to the integrity of the judicial system, and maintains our firm's long-standing commitment to community service," stated Julian Zebot, partner and chair of Maslon's Pro Bono Committee.
