Every Michigan attorney has an ethical responsibility to render public interest legal service, including the provision of pro bono legal services. The Michigan Rules of Professional Conduct state:
"A lawyer should render public interest legal service. A lawyer may discharge this responsibility by providing professional services at no fee or a reduced fee to persons of limited means, or to public service or charitable groups or organizations. A lawyer may also discharge this responsibility by service in activities for improving the law, the legal system, or the legal profession, and by financial support for organizations that provide legal services to persons of limited means." MRPC 6.1.
At Bos & Glazier, we know that we are fortunate to be lawyers. Practicing lawyers make up less than 1 percent of the U.S. population. There are very few people who can make sure that the legal system works for those who cannot afford the high costs of litigation. When civil rights are being violated, we are proud to be able to give our time to those who can only give us their gratitude.
