Pro bono program 
Entergy’s pro bono legal program helps community members through a variety of free legal services. In 2018, we were the first U.S. company to create a full-time role for pro bono counsel. 

Over the past decade, legal department employees have performed nearly 21,000 hours of pro bono services. That’s a $5.6 million in-kind donation to the community. In 2023, legal professionals donated more than 1,600 hours of pro bono time.

Our attorneys partner with legal aid nonprofits to offer free legal advice and representation on matters ranging from life-planning documents for first responders, FEMA claims after natural disasters, veterans’ benefits access, family law, post- conviction relief for incarcerated survivors of domestic violence, and assistance for nonprofits and minority and women-owned small businesses.

Pro bono legal team helps refugee family 
In 2023, the Entergy team helped an Afghan refugee family attain U.S. immigration asylum. The parents and their young child fled their homeland in 2021 as U.S. military forces withdrew from Afghanistan and the Taliban retook control.

At any time during the two years working through the U.S. immigration asylum process, the family could have been ordered to return to Afghanistan and had their lives endangered.

Working with Home is Here, an immigration-focused nonprofit, and Catholic Charities Archdiocese of New Orleans, Entergy’s legal professionals spent more than 250 hours helping the family navigate the immigration process, including representing them during eight-hour asylum interviews – all free of charge.

The family learned in July 2023 that their asylum requests were officially approved. They can now safely rebuild their lives while working toward U.S. citizenship, learn more here.
