Hunter & Uro are proud to announce that they have been accepted as a signatory to the Law Society’s Pro Bono Charter, demonstrating their continued commitment to providing access to justice. The firm follows the statement of commitment, as set out by the Charter, confirming that we believe that access to justice should be available to all members of society, including vulnerable people and families with lower incomes where public funding is not available.
Hunter & Uro Solicitors strives to provide the same high quality level of legal advice and representation for individuals requiring our services in order to access justice, but who cannot otherwise obtain it.
Speaking about the launch of the scheme, partner Pui Uro said, “I am delighted to share the news about our pro bono scheme and feel it shows a real commitment to continuing to work with our local community, both here in London and Bedford, in helping those with family law issues who feel that they have nowhere else to turn. The pro bono project builds upon the foundations of the firm’s keyworker scheme in a clear demonstration of our commitment to assisting others.”
“One of the founding principles of the firm was the desire to make a real impact and difference to the lives of our clients and their loved ones. I am sure that the Hunter & Uro Pro Bono Scheme will be a huge success and look forward to working with individuals in the local community to helping those in need of assistance with their family law problems.”
All applicants who wish to be considered for the pro bono scheme will need to complete an assessment carried out by the firm’s partners and will be asked to demonstrate proof that they are not eligible for public funding. Please contact us for more details on how to formally apply.
