Celebrate the Pro Bono Referral Program
The NH Bar Associationís Pro Bono Referral Program appreciates each of the many volunteers who have taken a case, staffed a referral marathon, assisted with case review, offered advice, or mentored a new volunteer during the past year. Your personal commitment is Pro Bonoís strength. Please help us to continue serving the legal needs of low-income individuals and families across the state and volunteer soon.
Here are just some of the programs Pro Bono offers to citizens in need:
In order to help keep these programs running, we need your help, please consider staffing a morning or afternoon at the Bar Center calling other Pro Bono attorneys to take a case during our Year-End Referral Marathons scheduled on December 1, December 7, and December 14.
