“Why Pro Bono, A Legal Perspective”- Special Issue 2024, Trial Reporter – Journal of Maryland Association of Justice

As the world becomes increasingly more complex, attorneys are in a unique position to bridge the gap between those who can afford and access legal services and those who cannot while promoting justice and equality to all. It is important to recognize and discuss the challenges that underserved and poverty-stricken litigants, particularly persons of color, face when dealing with the court system. This article, written by MVLS Family Law Attorney, Nancy Grimm, examines the importance of and need for pro bono services and how trial attorneys can support their communities through such services while combating the impact of racial injustice on Black individuals and people of color.
