Pro Bono Lawyers & Services
What happens if you need legal advice or services but are unable to afford a lawyer? This is where pro bono lawyers and their services come in.
Originally a Latin phrase, pro bono in legal communities refers to services performed by lawyers for free or lowered costs for the public good. Often, pro bono lawyers offer legal advice to those needing them but unable to afford the fees.
We believe deeply in the role our pro bono lawyers play in society – leveraging the professional expertise and experience they have can serve marginalised and underrepresented communities. Everyone deserves a right to justice and underserved individuals may be denied access simply due to a lack of income.
Just like legal clinics, our pro bono criminal lawyers are available to help you through any queries you may have concerning your legal issues in Singapore.
How Do Pro Bono Lawyers Work?
The legal system can be difficult for laypersons to navigate. In this regard, access to lawyer services can make a world of difference to the protection of a person’s legal rights. Lawyers hold an ethical obligation to provide pro bono assistance to the underserved in the community.
Our criminal lawyers are also able to support you pro bono if you need them. The monopoly that we enjoy in terms of access to the Courts entails a contract to serve communities in situations where others may not be competent to do so.
This way, pro bono services rendered by our criminal lawyers are significantly reduced or zero at cost – targeted at helping every member of our society get access to protecting and enforcing their legal rights here in Singapore.
