Pro Bono Partnership is a nationally recognized provider of pro bono legal services to nonprofits serving the disadvantaged and strengthening communities in Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York. The Partnership collaborates with in-house legal departments and law firms to deliver critical legal help, which nonprofits need to function. Most of its nonprofit clients serve largely underprivileged and marginalized populations whose needs expanded during the pandemic.
