Here at Scarinci Hollenbeck, diversity and community involvement is not an empty administrative promise. Our attorneys are actively involved in a plethora of organizations and groups aimed at advancing under-represented minorities in the legal profession. Our attorneys are Fulbright professors, recognized Latino leaders and serve organizations like Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts, WBENC—Women’s Business Enterprise National Council, the Puerto Rican Bar Association, Hispanic Bar Association and GLBT Rights and Women in the Profession Sections of the New Jersey State Bar Association. These associations serve to enrich our attorneys and help to strengthen our commitment to serve the communities they represent.
Along with outside organizational community involvement, our employees devote their time to pro bono work to help directly serve the public through legal services. Attorneys devote their time to work on pro bono civil rights issues such as representing the New Jersey State Bar Association as amicus curiae in the marriage equality litigation (Lewis v. Harris). Scarinci Hollenbeck has also served to defend the Anti-School Bullying Act in a challenge before New Jersey’s Council on Local Mandates. Along with our attorneys, law clerks at Scarinci Hollenbeck are required to log pro bono hours in an attempt to include everyone at Scarinci Hollenbeck in the firm’s efforts to better serve the community.
