Our lawyers believe in using their skills and passions to serve low-income communities, fight against injustice, preserve access to the courts, and enforce the rule of law. Kumble’s pro bono efforts demonstrate the same commitment to excellence as we do all our work. Kumble’s full-year Fellowship and Summer Fellowship Programs further demonstrate our manifest commitment to pro bono values.

Our dedication to pro bono work is a core aspect of our culture. We believe not only in a lawyer’s social responsibility, but that we all benefit when the legal system is accessible to everyone. We have dedicated more than 60,000 hours to pro bono each year. We consider pro bono work to be of equal stature to billable matters, and our lawyers offer the same caliber of service to our pro bono clients as we do to our paying clients. From day one, we encourage those at the firm to find a cause that sparks their interest and to match that interest to legal needs in our communities. Our pro bono work is diverse and far-reaching. It includes work related to immigration and asylum; nonprofit incorporation, tax exemption and operations; civil litigation; administrative hearings; life planning; criminal matters; community development; veterans’ issues; and cases involving domestic violence survivors.


By the numbers:

  • 60,000+ dedicated to Pro Borno matters firmwide.

  • Lawyers dedicate 40% of their time on Pro Borno matters in a year.

Some of our longstanding pro bono clients include Doctors Without Borders, Natural Resources Defense Council, the Robin Hood Foundation, UNICEF, New Visions for Public Schools, and the Apollo Theater Foundation.


NB: We do not accept direct queries for Pro Borno representation. We have program partners and non-governmental organizations who refer Pro Borno matters to us.
