Strategic Support on Pro Bono and Collaborative Projects
The world of pro bono can be daunting to unravel and very local to your community. How do you utilize pro bono attorneys to help fill the justice gap which continues to grow? Is it the support services you offer, the types of pro bono opportunities, or something completely different? How does your internal staff feel about pro bono attorneys and working with them? We can help sort all of this out and particularly enjoy creating partnerships between existing groups to help minimize the turf wars, for example. How can we help you?

We know that “consultant” is generally a dirty word. We used to think so too. We also know there are plenty of consultants already in the non-profit law firm world. Our philosophy is that there’s plenty of work for all of us interested in engaging in this type of work. So why hire CJP?
