Community Leadership

Since Pullman & Comley’s founding in 1919, we have played a vital role in shaping our local communities and contributing to the legal profession.  Our attorneys and staff are active and involved participants in charitable, civic, public service and professional organizations.  We take pride in our “Dress Down Fridays,” which raise thousands of dollars for local charities nominated by employees, and in organizing the firm’s participation in events including the annual March of Dimes Walk for Babies (pictured at left) and the Hartford Arts Council’s United Arts Campaign.

Some of the organizations supported by our firm include the following:

 

Pro Bono

Pullman & Comley’s commitment to pro bono work reflects the firm’s long tradition of legal excellence and public service.  We encourage our attorneys to take on pro bono work that serves individuals and nonprofit organizations that would otherwise not be able to afford legal representation.  Public service matters generally are undertaken as a result of a referral from a legal aid organization such as Connecticut Legal Services, Inc.; Greater Hartford Legal Aid, Inc.; Greater Hartford Legal Assistance Foundation, Inc.; New Haven Legal Assistance Association, Inc.; Pro Bono Partnership; Statewide Legal Services of Connecticut, Inc. and Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts.  Members of our firm also serve as court-appointed counsel for indigent clients on a wide variety of litigation matters.

Pullman & Comley’s pro bono activities are coordinated by Adam J. Cohen, who also serves as a member and legislative liaison for the Connecticut Bar Association’s Pro Bono Committee.  As coordinator for pro bono matters, Adam helps create opportunities for attorneys, summer associates and paralegals to volunteer for public service matters.
