Federal Pro Bono Activities
Scarinci Hollenbeck is also a participant in New Jersey’s ReNew Program. Established by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New Jersey, ReNew is a prisoner reentry program created to assist former federal inmates transitioning back to society. The program was officially launched in January 2013 to help ensure that former inmates will succeed after their release from prison and not commit new crimes that would send them back behind bars. Scarinci Hollenbeck is on the list of pool firms from which participants will have the opportunity to choose.
