Fox Rothschild's dedication to pro bono work spans our entire network of 26 offices, directly benefiting the communities where our attorneys live and work. By making a concerted effort to donate their time and services back to society, our attorneys are involved firsthand in making a lasting impact on their region.
Our broad-based pro bono program includes legal services at no cost to individuals who need assistance as well as various religious and community groups, nonprofit associations, and social welfare and human resources organizations.
Good Work Recognized
Lawyers and paralegals participating in the pro bono program receive credit for the time spent on those matters. Pro bono hours are also a factor used to determine base salaries and bonuses.
Serving Those Who Serve Our Country
Fox attorneys actively participate in numerous initiatives to help veterans of our nation’s armed forces as well as first responders. We operate a free legal clinic – the first of its kind – at the largest Veterans Administration hospital in New Jersey, handling landlord-tenant cases, child support and custody hearings, divorce litigation, and Social Security benefits cases for veterans and their families. Our attorneys also prepare wills for dying veterans and first responders to ensure their last wishes are preserved and honored. Additionally, we participate in other pro bono efforts for veterans, including transition assistance to post-military life and estate planning services.

"As a first-year associate in the Philadelphia Office, I received hands-on experience with the Philadelphia Volunteers for the Indigent Program. I was assigned a case, and worked closely with a senior mentor to provide comprehensive legal services."
"As a summer associate, I participated in the Habitat for Humanity initiative called 'Buildable Hours.' It was a day-long project where we went to various sites to create housing for underserved areas. It was a great team building exercise, and I really got to know those I was working with."
