We are proud of the work our attorneys do to strengthen families, empower the community, and protect civil rights. In conjunction with Pro Bono Month in October 2023, Bass, Berry & Sims celebrates our more than 125 legal professionals who made a significant investment in our pro bono work by providing more than 20 hours of service this past year, including the 35 individuals who contributed more than 100 pro bono hours. We consider these individuals our Pro Bono Champions and are thankful for their dedication to making a real impact in our communities.
