Pro bono is an integral part of the Benjamin & Khoury philosophy. We understand the value of investing in the people and communities around us.
That is why we offer our legal expertise and resources to assist those in need.
We actively seek to grow our pro bono practice. We currently assist various disadvantaged individuals, not-for-profit organisations, community groups and those who care for the vulnerable and distressed.
