Warner Norcross + Judd LLP has again been recognized with a 2018 Pro Bono Circle of Excellence Award from the State Bar of Michigan.
The firm, which has eight offices across Michigan, was recognized at the leadership level for the pro-bono contributions of partners, associates and of-counsel attorneys. To be recognized at this level, law firms must provide free or reduced-fee representation to low-income individuals or organizations and/or contribute a minimum of $500 per attorney to the State Bar’s Access to Justice Fund, which provides civil legal services to persons of limited means.
“We are again honored to be recognized for our pro-bono contributions to the communities where we live and work,” said Douglas A. Dozeman, managing partner. “Providing legal services to those in need helps ensure everyone in our state can have access to quality legal representation.”
Warner attorneys provide direct client representation, serve on boards for legal aid programs, engage in community legal education programs and advise nonprofit and low-income public interest groups. In addition, the firm makes an annual financial contribution to the Access to Justice Fund.
