Pro Bono Commitment
Hughes Fields & Stoby recognizes its obligation to encourage and support the participation by all of its attorneys in pro bono work particularly for the most vulnerable in our society.
We have adopted and maintained a clearly articulated firm policy which unequivocally states the firm’s commitment to pro bono work particularly for the most vulnerable and challenged in Guyana.
In recognition of the special needs of the poor for legal services, we believe that our firm’s pro bono activities should be particularly focused on providing access to the justice for persons otherwise unable to afford it.
Hughes Fields and Stoby has committed to donate a minimum of 6% of its billable time to pro bono legal services.
In meeting these voluntary goals, we agree that a majority of the minimum pro bono time contributed by our firm should consist of the delivery of legal services on a pro bono basis to persons of limited or no means or to charitable, religious, civic, community and educational organizations in matters which are designed primarily to address the needs of persons of limited means.
In order to be eligible for receipt of pro bono services we have established a screening procedure and process.
