Pro Bono

Anderson & Kreiger’s very first case, a pro bono suit, achieved the clean-up of a contaminated public water supply. Twenty five years later, we work hard to keep scoring those kinds of victories often.

To do so, our culture prioritizes complex, high impact pro bono cases and discounted public client work. We treat billable and pro bono hours the same. These efforts pay off. Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly recognized us with a 2013 “Excellence in Pro Bono” award. A recent survey revealed that our clients like this about us. And we know that it makes us better – and happier – lawyers.
