At MLO, we understand that some people may not have the financial means to pay for legal services, and we pride ourselves on offering free legal advice to those who fall within this category.
Doing pro bono work is at the heart of who we are as lawyers and as human beings. It allows us to use our legal skills to help without charge those who cannot afford our services. We believe that it is our duty as lawyers to assist the members of our community who are in need of legal representation, and this includes individuals and organisations of limited means.
We treat pro bono matters with the same care as any other matter, and the service provided to our pro bono clients is of the same quality as the service delivered to all our clients.
We commit at least 10% of our annual professional time to pro bono matters.
Our lawyers are encouraged to participate in pro bono activities early on in their career. We are proud to say that we have helped a very large number of people and non-profit organisations over the years.
