Pro Bono Representation
At the intersection of social and professional responsibility, you will find Kean Miller’s commitment to providing pro bono legal counsel. As one of the largest law firms in the region, we believe that every attorney has the professional, corporate, and civic responsibility to provide effective legal representation to people in need.
In the past five years, the firm's attorneys have handled over 100 pro bono matters through the Baton Rouge Bar Association’s Pro Bono Project, the Shreveport Bar Association, the Houston Bar Association, and the Orleans Public Defenders Office. These pro bono projects provides free legal services to the poor through volunteer attorney panelists. Each year, Kean Miller volunteers donate hundreds of hours of legal counsel and handle cases free of charge for qualified clients through various pro bono programs in the communities where we live and work.
Kean Miller pro bono volunteers handle a wide variety of matters, including litigating civil rights cases, advising non-profit organizations, assisting non-profit community organizations in transactions and employment matters, obtaining proper court jurisdiction for non-spousal abuse victims, assisting victims of human trafficking, and representing indigent persons in consumer, landlord-tenant, and family law matters. We directly aid people with limited means and substantial legal needs, provide legal counsel to help organizations advance their community service programs, and regularly accept court appointments to provide pro bono counsel in both civil and criminal matters.
