The pro bono momentum inspired by Sept. 11, 2001, was partially sustained in 2002, as New Jersey's top-grossing firms devoted more hours to charitable legal services. On average, fewer lawyers did substantial amounts of pro bono work, but total pro bono hours at the state's top 20 firms increased 8.6 percent to 76,423, the highest total since the Law Journal began its annual pro bono survey in 1991.
