Encouraging Pro Bono Engagement


Megan Rooney was recognized for her pro bono experience with New Age Services Corporation, a non-profit organization that provides adult outpatient drug treatment services for individuals, families and significant others in Chicago. “There is no difference between my pro bono work and my day-to-day work,” Ms. Rooney said. “My goal is for every client, pro bono or not, to receive high quality legal services, and to walk away from the engagement with a feeling that McDermott made a positive, measurable impact.” She added that the firm “has been incredibly supportive in my commitment to pro bono work.”
