The attorneys at BGL have a longstanding commitment to providing pro bono services to communities throughout Maryland. We devote hundreds of hours per year to high-quality legal representation at no cost. As a firm committed to the pursuit of social justice and equity, maintaining a robust pro bono practice is one way that we are closing the gap between those who can afford a lawyer and those who cannot. Our pro bono practice is diverse and represents the unique interests and skills of our attorneys and staff. We continue to work with MVLS to assist individuals in need of legal representation, as well as having our attorneys participate as members of the MVLS Board of Directors and serve on various committees.
