Pro Bono & Charity Work
Sullivan and Galleshaw is committed to providing pro bono legal services while supporting and participating in other charitable activities on an ongoing basis. Pro Bono is a Latin phrase meaning “for the public good”. As the need for legal services and access to justice for the public at large is overwhelming, Sullivan & Galleshaw takes very seriously their commitment to pro bono and civic work.
Each year Sullivan & Galleshaw take on various cases for individuals who are less fortunate, who would otherwise be left without proper legal representation or because a particular case will have a wide, lasting and positive impact on society as a whole. Sullivan & Galleshaw work diligently through their pro bono and charity efforts to provide support and enhancement to society and people in need.
