Founded in 2001, the Moore & Van Allen Public Service Committee is an action oriented group that seeks to identify, coordinate and facilitate public service and pro bono opportunities for our attorneys and staff.  In order to encourage participation internally, the Committee takes strides such as recognizing individual attorneys for their efforts with monthly pro bono awards.

The Public Service Committee supports the firm’s facilitation of and participation in pro bono work in an effort to augment legal services provided to low income individuals. In pursuit of this goal, firm attorneys have the opportunity to fulfill their ethical obligation to provide representation to indigent persons pursuant to Rule 6.1 of the North Carolina Rules of Professional Conduct.  Furthermore, MVA pro bono opportunities provide skill development in all areas of practice and foster relationships between partners and associates. Moore & Van Allen attorneys donate numerous hours handling traditional pro bono cases in a variety of areas. However, to better focus our pro bono efforts the Public Service Committee has adopted a series of projects to maximize case intake and volunteer engagement.
