Pro Bono Program Updates

Pro Bono

This is the time of year when Pro Bono staff are involved in closing cases for grant-funding purposes. If you received an update request from us, please respond with the current status of the case, so we can update our files. If the case is closed, or ready-to-close, we need documentation of legal work accomplished – very important for grant funders—as well as case outcomes and attorney hours. If you have any questions or need an update form in order to close out a case, please contact Margaret.

From the Pro Bono Program staff: Thank you so much for your assistance with this matter and for your generous service to Pro Bono Clients. We wish you all the best for the holiday season and New Year!
