Pro Bono/Commitment to Community

Whether utilizing their legal skills to protect the rights of children, veterans or immigrants; donating their time to pack up several thousand boxes at the local food bank; or helping underprivileged girls feel beautiful for their prom night, the attorneys and staff of Sedgwick exemplify a hands-on commitment to the community.

Sedgwick’s pro bono program, which assists our attorneys in securing meaningful pro bono work, has been embraced by our attorneys, many of whom have long histories of volunteer legal work. In 2006, when members of the firm’s Pro Bono Committee began to define a new focus for the firm’s pro bono efforts, they immediately identified opportunities for Sedgwick lawyers to serve the overwhelming unmet legal needs of children, including guardianship proceedings, immigration status, school disciplinary hearings and medical benefit matters. Effective legal representation in these and other proceedings can shape a child’s future, and by focusing efforts firmwide on children’s rights, Sedgwick attorneys learn from one another’s similar experiences and see the cumulative impact of their pro bono services.

The members of our firm also support a variety of community and charitable organizations. On any given weekend it is not unusual to find a team of Sedgwick attorneys and staff volunteering their time at a local charitable organization, collecting donations for a toy drive or walking in a 10K event to support cancer fighting research. These opportunities to give our time and money to the community are rewarding to us individually and as an organization. In addition to the change we can effect in our communities, these volunteer efforts provide us with the opportunity to reinforce internal working relationships and strengthen our close knit firm culture.
