Vandeventer Black is committed to giving back to the community through pro bono service. We believe that offering our time and services to underrepresented individuals is the right and necessary thing to do in order to make our world a better place. But let our actions speak louder than our words.

In recent years, our attorneys have:

  • Obtained a trial victory for the tenant in dispute with the landlord over lack of heat
  • Sought guardianship appointments for incapacitated adults
  • Volunteered with the Legal Aid Society of Southeastern Virginia in various capacities, including as part of the debtor clinic
  • Devoted hundreds of hours of pro bono service to other causes

Robert L. O’Donnell Pro Bono Service Award Recipients

To continue to foster and encourage a culture of service, the firm awards the Robert L. O’Donnell Pro Bono Service Award to one attorney for his or her exceptional pro bono contributions within the past year.
