Pro Bono Commitment

Niles, Barton & Wilmer, LLP supports its attorneys in serving their communities and fulfilling their professional and ethical responsibilities by providing pro bono legal services to appropriate individuals and organizations. All Niles Barton lawyers are encouraged to devote a portion of their time and professional services to pro bono matters.

Pro bono work provides many benefits to our firm, individual attorneys, and, of course, to the individuals and organizations to whom we provide free legal services. Pro bono work provides opportunities for attorneys to gain invaluable training and experience. It also helps us develop relationships with individuals and organizations as we demonstrate our firm’s commitment to the community.

To signal the firm’s commitment to pro bono work, the quality and level of an attorney’s pro bono work is held to the same standards of quality work product as any fee-generating work.

In addition to providing pro bono legal services, the firm contributes to non-profit organizations and encourages our lawyers to contribute financial support to organizations that provide legal services to persons of limited means in need of access to legal assistance in civil cases. Many of our attorneys have provided pro bono legal services for nonprofits and low-income individuals through the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service (MVLS), Maryland Legal Aid and the Pro Bono Resource Center of Maryland, among others.

Community involvement will always be a tradition of the past and future for Niles Barton. As a firm, we support programs that improve the future for people in need and the communities in which we live. We are proud to serve the Maryland Food Bank through our firm's ongoing community commitment. We are also fortunate to have a team of professionals who believe in giving back to the community by serving on the Boards of nonprofits and participating in charitable causes and civic leadership.
