Attorney Kirk C. Simoneau to Receive the 2018 Bruce E. Friedman Pro Bono Award
This award is given each year by the NH Bar and the UNH School of Law to recognize a UNH Law graduate and Bar member who has made significant and exemplary contributions to the delivery of volunteer legal services to the vulnerable and those who need it most.
Simoneau, an attorney with Nixon Vogelman Slawsky & Simoneau of Manchester, made his debut as a DOVE volunteer with a precedent setting Supreme Court Appeal, Heminway v. Heminway, resulting in the expansion of protections available to victims of domestic violence at final protective order hearings.
He takes cases as often as possible, logging hundreds of volunteer hours, all-the-while mentoring law students and freshly-minted DOVE volunteers. Simoneau has also embraced DOVE’s collaboration with UNH Law to train Daniel Webster Scholar candidates through an annual miniseries, creating a significant pool of client-ready DOVE volunteers upon graduation.
The award will be presented at a special event on Thursday, October 25 at 5:30 p.m. at UNH Law School in Concord. Hors d’oeuvres and drinks will be served.
