“We all agree that the attorney whose professional thoughts begin and end with his own private clients is a pitiable mockery of what a great lawyer is and that only by taking part in the movements for the betterment of the law and the profession can he practice law in the grand manner – the only way it is worth practicing”
… Pats Acholonu, JCA (as he then was; of blessed memory) in Williams v. Akintunde (1995) 3 NWLR (Pt. 381) 101 @ 115.
We believe at Maverick & Spectre that the joy in the practice of the legal profession does not reside solely in material benefits but its ideal beauty is in services being rendered to humanity. Our practice of law at Maverick & Spectre is thematic on impacting on our immediate community. It is for this reason that we constantly strive to render pro-bono services on a regular basis to those who cannot afford the cost of professional legal services or in deserving situations where circumstances demand. We believe in the words of Mr. Justice Black in Griffin v. Illinois (351 US 12, 19, 1956) that “there can be no equal justice where the kind of trial a man gets depends on the amount of money he has.”
Our pro-bono service extends to:
- Criminal defense and advocacy
- Legal Aid and Advisory to the indigents;
- Legal Clinics for apprentices of law and aspirants to the Bar
- Community Services.
