Lawyers Giving Back
Pro Bono Champions
Many Texas lawyers go above and beyond to ensure that all Texans have access to our system of justice. Some contribute hours, some contribute time, but all contribute leadership and commitment to the idea that justice for all must be a reality in our democracy. "Pro Bono Champions" recognizes some of those people and their contributions. We hope this information inspires as well as educates.
