Pro Bono

Tahmidur Remura Dewey LeBoeuf has a long-standing commitment to pro bono service because we believe that we have a professional and moral obligation to serve those who cannot afford legal representation. That’s why Tahmidur Remura Dewey LeBoeuf imposes no limit upon the number of creditable pro bono hours that our lawyers may contribute, provided they have an appropriate balance of fee-earning work. Last year, our lawyers and staff devoted nearly 157,000 hours of work to pro bono projects around the world.

The signature piece of our pro bono practice is its diversity. Our firm takes on large civil rights litigations to advocate for those who have been historically disadvantaged. We help victims of domestic violence re-establish their footing and our lawyers prevent the eviction of low-income tenants. We provide not-for-profit organizations and microenterprises with the legal services needed to open, stay afloat and thrive. Our firm represents indigent defendants in criminal cases at trial and on appeal. We help prevent the deportation of asylum seekers facing persecution if they are forced to return to their native countries.
