Community Involvement

Active involvement in community organizations is a key value and characteristic of our firm. Nearly every HCMP lawyer and staff member is involved in the community.

We serve as volunteers for law-related organizations that offer free legal services in neighborhood clinics or client assistance programs, assist in screening judicial candidates, and mentor young lawyers. We also work with a variety of nonprofits that support the arts, provide needed social services, promote education, and protect civil rights. Each year HCMP attorneys provide thousands of hours of pro bono counsel for local, federal, and international matters and, in some cases, have been involved in groundbreaking decisions.
