The law firm recognized 59 individuals across all of its offices who each provided more than 50 hours of pro bono legal service in 2016. Altogether, the firm’s lawyers provided 10,850 hours of pro bono legal service last year.

 

DeWald is a partner in the firm’s Business Transactions practice group and contributed more than 500 total pro bono hours in 2016.

 

Freeman is a partner in the firm’s Litigation practice group and contributed more than 400 total pro bono hours in 2016.

 

The pro bono attorney of the year award honors the late John P. Frank of legacy firm Lewis and Roca, who represented Ernesto Miranda before the U.S. Supreme Court in the landmark Miranda v. Arizona case.

 

The firm benefits from pro bono contributions in many ways including enhanced morale, attraction for recruits and mentoring opportunities, noted Pro Bono Committee Chair Ken Rossman. “We get to put our legal talents to use helping someone in need, and witness the huge impact it has on their lives,” he said.
