  WHAT IS PRO BONO?
 

Pro bono, in Latin, means “for the public good.” It denotes the free services provided by professionals as a means of social support. In legal practice, pro bono, is free representation and support services by attorneys for low-income and socially disadvantageous individuals and groups. Pro bono, in the World and in sophisticated jurisdictions has long been institutionalized. The service is provided by pro bono oriented networks.

Although, there are no institutionalized pro bono networks in Turkey, law offices provide this service voluntarily as part of their social responsibility. At Karataş Law Office, we have a long established pro bono department to carry out our responsibilities and the right to access to justice as lawyers. Our attorneys provide a first rate representation to pro bono clients based on the direct applications channeled by non-profit NGOs and personal requests.

All applications are reviewed based on certain criteria, then expert attorneys are assigned to the cases accordingly for legal representation at every necessary aspect. Our pro bono practise is chiefly dealing with child abuse cases. We mainly provide legal aid and representation for low-income children, parents, and families who had been subject to child molestation, abandonment, and maltreatment.
