Question and Answer

Can an attorney with bona fide offices in both NJ and PA donate legal services to a domestic violence prevention program in Philadelphia and use that volunteer work to claim exemption from the New Jersey pro bono requirement?

No. Under exemption code 88, an attorney may claim an exemption if he or she can certify that he or she has performed at least twenty-five (25) hours of pro bono services for domestic violence service providers. However, the volunteer work must be done in New Jersey in order to claim the exemption.
