32 McGuireWoods Lawyers Inducted Into N.C. Pro Bono Honor Society
May 28, 2020
The North Carolina Pro Bono Resource Center inducted 32 McGuireWoods
lawyers into its 2019 North Carolina Pro Bono Honor Society. According to
the PBRC, these lawyers each provided 50 or more hours of pro bono legal
services in 2019, thus meeting the aspirational threshold set by the North
Carolina Rules of Professional Conduct.
The full list
of 2019 inductees included 520 lawyers who provided pro bono legal services
to North Carolinians living in poverty. Each member receives a certificate
of recognition from the Supreme Court of North Carolina.
“Pro bono lawyers are a crucial resource for those North Carolinians who
cannot afford legal services,” said PBRC director Sylvia Novinsky in a
press release announcing the inductees. “I am inspired by the volunteer
spirit of the North Carolina bar highlighted by pro bono reporting. The
growing list of attorneys recognized by the North Carolina Pro Bono Honor
Society serves as a symbol to other attorneys that finding time to
volunteer is doable.”
