My pro bono involvement brings me peace of mind, both professionally and personally. For me, it means balance. Lawyering, by definition, leads to solutions and gives hope. Under which pretext then should we not offer it to those who most need it? Att. Dora Călian
To offer my services pro bono in a case signalled by ACTEDO has personally brought me a lot of satisfaction. First of all, I had the opportunity to do what I love most (being a lawyer) not for my self-interest, but merely with the goal of helping people in a difficult legal situation. It is easier to contribute to society by doing what you love. Secondly, it was a challenge for me to communicate with people in a vulnerable situation out of fear I might say or do something that would offend them. I was pleasantly surprised by our communication, by their understanding and genuine generosity. Thirdly, when you do a good deed selflessly there are many unexpected rewards! Att. Paula Petean
To do pro bono means to get involved in my community’s problems, to have an active role in solving social problems. Lawyers have to be aware of their role as defenders of the rule of law and to contribute to the protection of the rights of vulnerable groups. Att. Roxana Mândruţiu
In our opinion, lawyers have an important role in society: they have to defend not only the most successful members of society, but also the vulnerable. Offering pro bono legal assistance to individuals or non-profits is part of lawyers’ responsibility. From a desire to actively contribute to consolidating our community and to the development of pro bono in Romania, the lawyers at David, Corcheș and Associates Attorneys at Law have joined ACTEDO’s project The Pro Bono Network for Human Rights. Att. Diana Corcheș of David, Corcheș & Associate Attorneys at Law
For me, pro bono represented an attempt to set on an equal footing the rights and freedoms of vulnerable people with those of the perpetrators.
