    A Community of Service

    Our commitment to work in the public interest dates from Arent Fox’s founding in 1942. The partners believed that community service and pro bono public interest work were integral parts of the practice of law and made it a priority to be at the forefront of the private bar’s efforts to ensure that indigents have access to justice.
