Pro Bono

By Beth Cheatham

What is pro bono?  If you work in litigation like me you have probably had experience with pro bono plaintiffs or defendants.  In that setting, pro bono indicates that the party is not represented by counsel.  Those cases can be a challenge because the opposing party is often unsure how to properly respond to pleadings and discovery and how to conduct themselves with the court.
