The Firm is strongly committed to the communities in which we work. One of the many ways we serve these communities is our commitment to pro bono activities.
Kent Meyers is involved in ground-breaking efforts to represent and assist children in the Juvenile Division of the Oklahoma County District Court. C&D attorneys have consistently volunteered their time for this organization since its inception.
The federal district courts in Oklahoma, in conjunction with the local Federal Bar Association, work with local attorneys to provide pro bono legal services to prisoners making civil rights claims. C&D attorneys routinely volunteer their time for these cases, and C&D associates have even first-chaired trials in these cases.
C&D attorneys are heavily involved in non-profit boards, leadership programs and other civic organizations. And, associates who don't know where to go to get involved receive the benefit of being able to ask C&D attorneys who are already in these positions.
At C&D we don't just talk about giving back, we put our money where our mouth is. We require our associates to put in at least 100 hours of non-billable work every year, and they are given every opportunity to use that time for worthy pro bono pursuits.
