Pro Bono Activity
Trinity appreciates diversity and encourages its staff to retain links and continue to undertake work that assists the local community.
Particularly in situations where Legal Aid funding is unavailable and where individuals would suffer injustice from a lack of assistance or representation, such as in Personal Bankruptcy or Mortgage eviction cases.
All staff at Trinity have undertaken pro-bono referrals from local community organisations and individuals directly, this is supported and encouraged by the firm.
Trinity also lends support to its staff giving their own time to a range of charitable organisations.
