About Us: Pepper Center

The Pepper Center for Public Service is a unique organization that draws on the talents of Pepper Hamilton's retired partners and senior lawyers to wrestle with tough problems facing our communities.


The Pepper Center for Public Service takes advantage of the leadership, skills, experience, passion and critical thinking of Pepper Hamilton's retired and senior partners and counsel by supporting their efforts to study, analyze and work with community partners and other experts to resolve problems that impact the lives of people in our communities.

Pepper Hamilton created and supports the Center, but is a stand-alone organization, led by Pepper Center Fellows, who are distinguished retired or senior Pepper partners and counsel.


The Center meets with national and local leaders and experts to better understand unsolved problems, discuss potential solutions, and work to develop and staff public service projects to address unmet needs. This may involve pro bono legal assistance, consulting, providing a forum for the exchange of ideas, advocating for solutions in regulatory or legislative arenas, or a combination of activities. Areas of focus include public education, civics and immigration.

Common to all of its work, the Center and its Fellows are committed to improving the lives of those in need in our communities.
