Making the Choice to Make an Impact
From humble beginnings to the law firm we've become, we remain devoted to helping our communities thrive.
The attorneys of Nexsen Pruet have long understood the importance of choosing to support the communities where we live and work. It is a commitment that dates back to our early years, when Julian Nexsen, for whom our law firm is named, provided legal services free of charge to a wide range of charitable and nonprofit organizations in South Carolina.
Today, we proudly carry on this rich tradition of assisting those who may have limited means to hire legal counsel or may be facing insurmountable obstacles as they seek access to justice.
Our attorneys provide pro bono services to citizens throughout the Carolinas and to organizations dedicated to delivering legal services to those less fortunate. We aim to identify pro bono clients who have both great need and who are most likely to benefit from our capabilities and experience. Cases and matters span a wide range of practice areas and are handled by teams from all nine-firm locations.
In 2021, Nexsen Pruet attorneys are proud to serve as pro bono advisors to the Benedict College Women’s Business Center. Benedict is one of only two HBCUs in the nation to house a Women’s Business Center and the only one to offer statewide services in South Carolina. The center stimulates innovation and entrepreneurship in underserved communities by supporting and growing women and minority-owned businesses.
To honor frontline health care workers in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Nexsen Pruet attorneys and staff are hosting a series of events to assist health care workers across the Carolinas. In June, the firm hosted an event at Self Regional Medical Center in Greenwood, SC, to offer free wills and related advice to 30 essential Health Care Heroes employed by Self Regional. In July, Nexsen Pruet delivered and executed more than 60 customized, free legal documents such as wills and healthcare powers of attorney, to Health Care Heroes employed by Brightmore Retirement Community in South Charlotte, NC.
Nexsen Pruet’s Pro Bono Committee reviews and approves all pro bono work to ensure it reflects firm policies and goals, while representing meaningful, powerful, and enduring opportunities to serve.
