Attorneys admitted to practice in Ohio under corporate counsel status may also provide pro bono legal services to persons of limited means or charitable organizations, provided the pro bono legal work is assigned to the corporate counsel attorney by an organization recognized by the Ohio Supreme Court.

Everything You Need to Know About Corporate Counsel Status and Pro Bono

“I BEGAN MY LEGAL CAREER IN WASHINGTON, D.C., WHERE I VOLUNTEERED AT LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS PROVIDING LEGAL ASSISTANCE TO LOW-INCOME AND DISADVANTAGED INDIVIDUALS IN THE COMMUNITY. I NOW LIVE AND WORK IN OHIO, BUT AS AN ATTORNEY LICENSED OUTSIDE THE STATE, I COULDN’T FOLLOW MY PASSION FOR PRO BONO SERVICE. I’M GRATEFUL THAT THE OHIO SUPREME COURT HAS RECOGNIZED CORPORATE STATUS ATTORNEYS AS ANOTHER VALUABLE RESOURCE IN GIVING A LEGAL VOICE TO OHIO’S MOST VULNERABLE CHILDREN, VETERANS, SENIORS AND VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.”
