NH Bar Pro Bono Referral Marathons: A Salute to the 2014 Participants
A message from Ginny Martin, associate director of legal services at the NH Bar Association:
This month we would like to take an opportunity to thank those who volunteer to help Pro Bono place cases by making calls to other attorneys at one of our “Referral Marathons.”
These events help shorten the wait for clients in need, and we appreciate those who make the calls as well as those who agree to take a case when called upon. It’s a win-win situation for Pro Bono! Please give us a call at (603) 224-5387 if you are interested in joining us for one of our 2015 marathons.
