One year after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, The American Lawyer's September issue reflects on the increased interest in pro bono work nationwide, citing Kelley Drye as a prime example. As reported in the article, Partner Robert Crotty, who heads the Firm’s Pro Bono program, volunteered Kelley Drye’s services as the relief effort was mobilized.
According to the article, the pro bono hours at AmLaw 200 firms in New York increased 16 percent from 2000 to 2001, compared to an 8 percent decrease from 1999 to 2000. Kelley Drye's commitment to assisting those in need played an important role in this development.
