About Us

Pro Bono and Community Service

Bressler, Amery & Ross is committed to providing our clients with the highest quality legal services while adhering to the highest ethical standards in delivering those services. This commitment to excellence extends to our pro bono clients and the charitable organizations we partner with. Our attorneys have committed their time and resources to serving the public good.  By helping the less fortunate, we strengthen our bonds to the communities in which we practice and we make a profound difference in the lives of our clients.

We consider it our duty to provide representation to those with meritorious legal challenges but without the means to afford counsel. Our Pro Bono Committee identifies worthy causes and supports the firm’s attorneys in providing assistance to a wide variety of organizations. Some of the organizations we partner with:

  •     ABA Military Pro Bono Project
  •     Veterans Consortium Pro Bono Program
  •     Battered Women’s Legal Advocacy Project
  •     City Bar Justice Center
  •     Deirdre O’Brien Child Advocacy Center
  •     Habitat for Humanity
  •     Minority Corporate Counsel
  •     Women’s Fund of New Jersey
  •     Governor’s Counsel for Women
  •     Special Olympics
  •     Partners for Women & Justice

Service to the community is ingrained into our firm culture and we strive to maintain strong ties with our community. Many of our attorneys hold positions with charitable organizations and are active members of bar programs designed to assist those whose voices are otherwise unheard. Community service is not a burden that we tolerate, but an opportunity that we welcome. It provides us with the chance to give back to and strengthen the communities that we consider our home.

There are no better examples of the old adage “it is better to give than to receive” than pro bono and community service. Time has proven that the assistance we provide to the disadvantaged enriches our own personal and professional experiences. The following are some community service organizations we have had the privilege to work with:

  •     Boy Scouts of America
  •     Lawyers for Kids 5K Race
  •     Montclair Parking Authority
  •     Montclair Business Improvement District
  •     Township of Montclair Civil Rights Commission
