Gov. Lynch Salutes Pro Bono Program
Governor John Lynch recently signed a proclamation honoring the Pro Bono Referral Program’s efforts to help NH Bar members assist low-income citizens with urgent civil legal matters. More than 18,000 hours – equivalent to the workload of a law firm of 10 full-time lawyers – were contributed by lawyers admitted in New Hampshire in the last year.
