At Moore & Van Allen, we fully embrace our responsibility to drive positive community change and prioritize pro bono and hands-on volunteer opportunities. Each of Moore & Van Allen’s signature service efforts is built on the firm’s long held belief that together, we can do more. Together, we can dream more, believe more, share more, inspire more, and serve more.

Public Service Committee

MVA’s Public Service Committee, established in 2001, leads the firm’s public service and pro bono efforts by identifying, coordinating, and facilitating opportunities for MVA attorneys and staff. To better focus its efforts, the committee developed a series of internal public service and pro bono projects to maximize case intake and volunteer engagement. Each project is managed by a volunteer project leader who coordinates efforts with the firm’s community partner organizations.
