Firm Pro Bono Initiatives in the Spotlight
Moore & Van Allen’s pro bono efforts were featured in the April 15 issue of South Carolina Lawyers Weekly and the April 18 issue of North Carolina Lawyers Weekly. The article “At Moore & Van Allen, pro bono is good business” emphasizes the Firm’s commitment to serving the community, and overviews the numerous ongoing efforts developed to meet and exceed this commitment. Manager of Diversity and Community Initiatives Stephanie Gryder is quoted.
“While the debate continues in many states over whether pro bono work should be mandated or voluntary, the North Carolina Bar Association encourages licensed attorneys to participate in a minimum of 50 hours of pro bono work each year… But Carolina-based law firm Moore & Van Allen pushes its attorneys to exceed that 50-hour target…,” it reads.
“Gryder said she considers the MVA pro bono initiatives vital both to the success of the firm as a business as well as its success in the Carolina communities. ‘This approach helps Moore & Van Allen foster an internal workplace culture that greatly values a commitment to our community,’ she said.”
