The American Bar Association Standing Committee on Pro Bono and Public Service has recognized four Massachusetts attorneys and one corporate law department as ABA Free Legal Answers 2018 Pro Bono Leaders for their extraordinary pro bono service through Mass Legal Answers Online.
Barbara Oro of Melrose, Douglas McCormac of North Dartmouth, David C. Henderson of Nutter McClennen & Fish LLP, and the Boston office of Liberty Mutual Insurance were among those honored.
Mass Legal Answers Online, part of the ABA’s Free Legal Answers Project, is a website where volunteer attorneys answer civil legal questions posed by low-income Massachusetts residents. The ABA Pro Bono Leader recognition was given to individual attorneys who answered 50 or more civil legal questions and organizations whose volunteers collectively answered 75 or more civil legal questions in 2018.
Mass Legal Answers is currently recruiting attorneys to join our pro bono panel. For more information, go to bit.ly/MLAOinfo or register at www.masslao.org.
