DuBois' Dedication to Pro Bono Highlighted in The Texas Lawbook Feature
Since joining the firm in 2021, Stinson LLP attorney Grant DuBois has logged over 100 hours of pro bono legal services within the Dallas metropolitan community.
DuBois, a real estate and public finance attorney, spoke with The Texas Lawbook about why pro bono is important to him and how he was able to manage his billable practice with pro bono work.
"Attorneys have been viewed by the general public as an undesirable group since the beginning of our profession," DuBois said. "One of the ways we can start to change this generalized perception is to provide pro bono services as often as we can."
DuBois, described by The Texas Lawbook as a "pro bono pro," also provided advice to attorneys wanting to devote more time to pro bono matters.
"Find a passion project. All of us – especially those at larger law firms – feel the constant pressure of billable hours. If anyone claims not to, they're probably lying," DuBois said. "But when you work on a project or for a cause that you're passionate about, it changes the game entirely."
DuBois focuses his practice on real estate and public finance, helping clients protect their interests in purchase and sale agreements, commercial leases and non-disclosure agreements. His past experience as a litigator brings a strategic and valuable perspective to clients seeking representation involving real estate matters. In addition to his practice, DuBois manages a docket of pro bono criminal defense cases and has participated in several veterans legal clinics through the Veterans Affairs Medical Center and the Dallas Volunteer Attorney Program.
