Using our skills to give hope to those in need

Without a doubt, Katten attorneys are passionate about the law. But when it comes to giving their time, resources and talent to serve individuals and organizations in need, that passion burns even brighter. 

The fact is, we are committed to helping others. And not just in meeting their legal needs, but in bringing them something even more important: hope.

The key to our success begins with an organic approach to providing pro bono services — one that connects individual attorneys with opportunities that match their interests. From there, our lawyers’ passion to give back to the communities in which they live takes over and our team contributes tens of thousands of hours each year to a group of organizations that includes both longtime partners and those at the forefront of the issues affecting our society today. Across our firm, Katten attorneys have countless stories of the courage and determination of their clients and the life-transforming impact of extending a helping hand. 

Our program has been recognized as a model by the American Bar Association, the National Legal Aid & Defender Association and numerous other organizations. We are honored to have the opportunity to help our pro bono clients, and we are extremely proud of the efforts and accomplishments of our attorneys.
