At Jones Walker, giving back to our communities is a way of life. Our commitment dovetails with our belief that going beyond to help our neighbors and those in need is essential if we are to make the places where we work, live, and play the places we love – and are proud – to call home.
By sharing our time, talent and financial resources, Jones Walker brings opportunity and hope to countless individuals that rely on the outreach programs of civic and nonprofit organizations for food, housing, medical care, education, recreation, cultural enrichment, legal counsel, and other vital services. The firm is frequently honored by organizations and cities for its commitment and contributions.
Jones Walker lawyers and professionals dedicate thousands of hours annually to helping advance the missions of organizations located in our local markets, as well as those with national and global reach. We serve in leadership roles on boards, committees, and capital fundraising campaigns; pick up hammers and paint brushes to help build houses for families; tutor students and collect school supplies; participate in runs and walks to support charitable causes; share our insights with aspiring lawyers; and collect funds, supplies, and clothes to help victims impacted by natural disasters.
In the legal arena alone, we provide nearly 4,000 hours of pro bono legal counsel each year to individuals who cannot afford representation. Our lawyers have worked on a variety of challenging pro bono cases ranging from housing disputes and child custody matters to discrimination and immigration.
