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.
