ABA Award

I am humbled to have been told that I will receive one of the American Bar Association's Pro Bono Publico Awards at the upcoming ABA Annual Meeting in Chicago.  I believe that this award recognizes my direct service work, as well as my role in in developing and promoting the innovative ACT 2 program of the Legal Aid Society of Cleveland.  This program now engages more than 100 late career and retired attorneys in providing pro bono services.  Some accept cases for individual clients referred by Legal Aid or volunteer at quick advice clinics that Legal Aid sponsors in public libraries and community centers.  Others work in-house at Legal Aid providing direct service or training staff.
