Every year at Shami Messinger PLLC, our lawyers and legal personnel devote hundreds of hours to pro bono client representations. We have provided Intellectual Property legal services to many individual designers, artists, inventors, non-profit and non-governmental organizations. We engage in these charitable activities because we are committed to increasing access to representation for creators who would not otherwise be able to retain counsel.
This past year, we have helped our Pro Bono clients secure trademark registrations, pursue patents, and copyright registrations. We also work with them on IP Strategy, preparing and reviewing agreements to help ensure that they can reap the benefits of their creative work.
We also work with Catholic Charities to assist asylum seekers in court and before federal agencies.
This giving Tuesday, please support our partner organizations in helping bring access to justice to creators and other deserving people:
