At every level, our actions make statements about who we are and what we value. Pro bono work has an important and continuing role in our practice.
Foremost, we respect the dignity and worth of individuals. Since our beginning, the Maslon firm has had a strong commitment to equal opportunity. We maintain a work environment in which every person can participate regardless of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, or disability.
One way we give something back to the community is through our pro bono program. Participation is optional, but most litigation partners and associates spend an average of four to seven percent of their time on pro bono activities.
As private citizens, we devote time and energy in service to community groups, take an active role in local and national politics, teach continuing legal education classes, write textbooks and articles on law, and serve as adjunct professors at Minnesota's law schools.
Individually, we are runners, golfers, bikers, woodworkers, cooks, sports fans, arts patrons, travelers and family people. Always, we are involved, putting our positive energies to work for public, private and personal good.
