KT IMPACT’s Pro Bono commitment honors the legal profession’s responsibility to serve individuals and organizations that ordinarily cannot afford representation even when basic rights and interests are at stake. We believe in a legal system that works for everyone, regardless of economic or social status. Our efforts to close the justice gap provide an excellent platform for our attorneys to develop their legal skills and engage with clients we might not otherwise encounter, making us better attorneys in the process.

Established in 2001, our Pro Bono commitment focuses on seven key areas believed to have the greatest positive impact on society and on individuals: 

  • Children & Education
  • Homelessness & Poverty
  • Civil Rights & Criminal Justice
  • Human Trafficking, Asylum & Children’s Immigration
  • Community Economic Development
  • Nonprofit Organizations
  • Domestic Violence
