Honored for donating more than 50 hours last year were: Jamie Cox, who helped several non-profit organizations with their applications for tax-exempt status, and helped the Triangle Greenways Council with their acquisitions of land to be used for conservation and recreation. Ann Stuart drafted estate documents for a Duplin County resident who had advanced MS and also assisted the victim of a massive mortgage loan swindle in regaining clear title to his property. Martin Warf and paralegal Tracy Bowling together favorably settled the case of a client who was injured when struck by a door being forcibly opened by her landlord. These four names will be added to the Troutman Sanders Pro Bono Wall of Fame. The firm also made a financial contribution in their names to Kids in Need of Defense (KIND), a national non-profit organization that provides legal assistance to unaccompanied children in U.S. immigration proceedings.
