About the Pro Bono Service Pledge for Georgia Attorneys
Show Your Commitment to Pro Bono Service. Affirm Pledge using Your Attorney Profile Control Panel. (Log-In Required)

The Center for Legal Solution's Pro Bono Service Pledge simply expresses an attorney's a commitment to perform voluntary pro bono public service. We believe that incorporating some specific information about pro bono services in our Attorney Referral Directory will help attorneys find meaningful opportunities to serve the legal needs of persons of limited means and non-profit organizations.

The Pledge is an affirmation of Rule 6.1 of the Georgia Rules of Professional Conduct. Rule 6.1 states, in pertinent part:
A lawyer should aspire to render at least (50) hours of pro bono publico legal services per year. In fulfilling this responsibility, the lawyer should:

(a) provide a substantial portion of the (50) hours of legal services without fee or expectation of fee to:

(1) persons of limited means; or

(2) charitable, religious, civic, community, governmental and educational organizations in matters which are designed primarily to address the needs of persons of limited means; and

(b) provide any additional services through:

(1) delivery of legal services at no fee or substantially reduced fee to individuals, groups or organizations seeking to secure or protect civil rights, civil liberties or public rights, or charitable, religious, civic, community, governmental and educational organizations in matters in furtherance of their organizational purposes, where the payment of standard legal fees would significantly deplete the organization's economic resources or would be otherwise inappropriate;

(2) delivery of legal services at a substantially reduced fee to persons of limited means; or

(3) participation in activities for improving the law, the legal system or the legal profession.

In addition, a lawyer should voluntarily contribute financial support to organizations that provide legal services to persons of limited means.

The Pledge is not a contract nor is it a professional standard of care. Making this Pledge does not obligate an attorney to handle any particular matter. We hope to help attorneys find rewarding pro bono service opportunities and expect attorneys to consider such service carefully on a case-by-case basis.

Attorney profiles in the Center's Attorney Referral Directory will prominently display a graphic indicating an attorney's Commitment to Pro Bono Service and also display an optional text field that allow attorneys to describe the kind of pro bono service they perform, or are interested in performing.
