Gaining More By Giving Back

Stacey Friedman, Executive Vice President and General Counsel of JPMorgan Chase & Co, wrote an article about the pro bono activities shared by her colleagues. Ms. Friedman worked with The Legal Aid Society and assisted a client who had been unemployed for some time.

The client had a good work history but was unable to get back into the workforce after several months at home caring for a sick child. JPMorgan legal employees helped this client and hundreds like him as part of the company’s annual global Pro Bono Day of Service.

The company's legal employees participated in a Community Service Day program at The Legal Aid Society which consisted of a resume workshop to assist clients. The event was sponsored by the Society's New Leadership Program and the Pro Bono Practice.
