2020 pro bono awards

PBRC is excited to honor an incredible group of lawyers and organizations. This year's winners helped in a wide range of case areas, from bankruptcy, criminal record expungement, children's welfare, to immigration status. All recipients shared similar traits: professionalism, compassion, fearless advocacy, and zealous dedication to helping as many clients as possible.

Usually recognized in person at MSBA’s June Legal Summit & Annual Meeting in Ocean City, the 2020 award recipients were honored by video presentations during MSBA’s November Legal Excellence Week.
