“I am delighted that Dick Walker has agreed to join the Partnership’
Mr. Walker said, "The Partnership is an invaluable provider of critically needed legal services to the many nonprofits, and their constituents, in disadvantaged communities. I embrace the Partnership's mission and look forward to helping expand its reach."
Pro Bono Partnership provides free business and transactional legal services to nonprofit organizations serving the disadvantaged or enhancing the quality of life in neighborhoods in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Substantially leveraging the impact of its in-house legal staff, the Partnership annually recruits and mobilizes hundreds of attorneys from major corporations and law firms to donate their time and expertise on behalf of its nonprofit clients, enhancing their ability to improve conditions in their communities.
Founded in 1997, the Partnership has offices in White Plains, NY; Hartford, CT, and Parsippany, NJ, and has created affiliate organizations in Atlanta, GA and Cincinnati, OH. The Partnership annually addresses the legal needs of 600 charities in the New York tri-state area, while engaging 900 in-house and law firm volunteers to take on pro bono projects for these clients.
