Pro Bono & Community Service

McCandlish Lillard attorneys are active in the communities in which they live and work.

The Virginia Rules of Professional Conduct require all Virginia lawyers to “be mindful of deficiencies in the administration of justice and of the fact that the poor, and sometimes persons who are not poor, cannot afford adequate legal assistance.” McCandlish Lillard takes that directive very seriously.  We encourage, and indeed require, our attorneys to perform pro bono legal work, whether it’s serving one needy client, or helping many through our contributions to worthy projects like Legal Services of Northern Virginia, the Embry Rucker Community Shelter, or Habitat for Humanity.

Our attorneys are active in the communities in which they live and work. We are Rotarians, Lions, and Knights of Columbus. We are trustees of charitable and educational foundations, and have served on the Executive Committee of the National Capital Area Boy Scouts of America, the Council of the Virginia Historical Society, and the Arts Council of Fairfax County. We have served on the boards of the George C. Marshall International Center and Oatlands Plantation in Loudoun County, the Claude Moore Charitable Foundation, the City of Fairfax and the Fairfax County Chambers of Commerce, the Virginia Bar Association, Virginia State Bar and the Loudoun and Fairfax Bar Associations, the Community Foundation of Northern Virginia, Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation, Northern Virginia chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Salvation Army, Fair Lakes Rotary Club, the Friends of Oakton Library, Brain Injury Services, and the Dulles Area Transportation Association, among many others.

We believe community service and pro bono activities make us better lawyers and better people.
