Chief Justice Saylor Supports and Encourages Pro Bono Efforts to Serve the Civil Legal Needs of the Poor

Chief Justice of Pensylvania Thomas G. Saylor has prepared a letter to all licensed attorneys in Pennsylvania expressing support for efforts to serve the civil legal needs of our poorest citizens.

He stated that in his role as Chief Justice he sees the remarkable benefit provided by pro bono lawyers working to meet the civil legal needs of the community and recognized the model partnership, promoted by the Pennsylvania Bar Association, of local legal aid programs working with local Bars to facilitate private practice attorneys providing pro bono public service to those in need.

Finally, the Chief Justice encouraged all Pennsylvania attorneys to make a personal commitment to provide pro bono service in whatever way they are able, whether through direct representation of the poor or through financial support of Pennsylvania's legal aid programs, and thanked those who already contribute  their time or offer financial support to the worthy endeavor of serving the poor.
