Pro Bono

  • LSW is committed to pro bono service.  We take on representations at the request of courts and participate in volunteer legal services programs sponsored by the Legal Aid Society, the American College of Trial Lawyers, the New York Lawyers for the Public Interest, the Office of the Appellate Defender, and other legal services organizations.  In addition, the firm’s partners routinely serve by court appointment on committees dedicated to the improvement of legal services to the indigent—among them the First Department’s Indigent Defense Organization Oversight Committee and the Criminal Justice Act Advisory Committee for the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

    The firm’s lawyers also contribute time to not-for-profit organizations, and its partners have held leadership positions in various legal and charitable organizations, including the Federal Bar Council, New York Lawyers for the Public Interest, the New York City Bar Association, the Practising Law Institute, and the Historical Society of the New York Courts.
