Bilzin Sumberg — a Miami-based firm that has gone above and beyond to serve its community — will receive the 2023 Law Firm Commendation from Chief Justice Carlos G. Muñiz at the annual Pro Bono Awards ceremony January 26 at the Florida Supreme Court.
The commendation honors significant contributions in the delivery of legal services to individuals or groups on a pro bono basis.
Community engagement and pro bono service are a crucial part of Bilzin Sumberg’s ethos. In 2021, the firm through its single Miami office collectively contributed 2,235 pro bono hours to individuals and nonprofit organizations across the state. The firm has a two-pronged strategy to pro bono work, working with local legal aid and voluntary bar associations to take individual pro bono cases while also supporting the ecosystem in which underserved individuals live and work.
