McGuireWoods received an Austin Chamber 2023 Austin Gives Employee Engagement Award in the small business category, which recognizes companies that promote volunteerism and community engagement with nonprofits. Winners were announced Aug. 29 during a luncheon at the Four Seasons Hotel in Austin.
McGuireWoods collaborates with nonprofit partners to provide pro bono services across the Austin metro area to address unmet legal needs. These include multiple events each year to assist military veterans, including low-income, unemployed, disabled and homeless veterans who struggle to access and afford legal counsel. McGuireWoods volunteers have organized pro bono legal clinics to help veterans apply for military benefits and petition for criminal record expungements, among other services.
In 2022, McGuireWoods received the National Veterans Legal Services Program’s Pro Bono Partner of the Year Award. The honor recognized the extraordinary pro bono services provided by McGuireWoods and the firm’s commitment to serving veterans.
