The Justice Initiatives Committee of the State Bar of Michigan is pleased to publish the second annual A Lawyer Helps Pro Bono Honor Roll. The 2020 Honor Roll recognizes individual attorneys, solo practitioners, law firms, and corporations that support access-to-justice efforts by providing pro bono legal services to low-income individuals and families throughout Michigan.
Law firms and corporations that submitted an Honor Roll application and achieved a per-attorney average of 30, 50, or 100+ hours of pro bono legal services in 2019 were eligible for recognition on the 2020 Honor Roll. Individual attorneys and solo practitioners who submitted an Honor Roll application and provided 30, 50, or 100+ hours of qualifying pro bono legal services in 2019 were also eligible for recognition on the 2020 Honor Roll.
For the 2020 Honor Roll, the pro bono service hours provided by more than 1,200 Michigan-licensed attorneys in 2019 were submitted to the State Bar. While most eligible attorneys wanted to be publicly recognized for their qualifying pro bono service, many attorneys did not wish to be included on the published version of the Honor Roll and submitted their 2019 pro bono service hours to the State Bar for reporting purposes only.
