In this Issue

The judicial branch will no longer assess a 3 percent convenience or service fee on electronic payments made when attorneys and litigants e-file cases through the NH e-Court Project, effective July 1, 2015. Regular case initiation and e-filing fees ($10 for small claims and $20 for all other case types) will still apply. For more details, see the July issue of Bar News, out later this month.

NH Bar members have already made some generous (and tax-deductible) donations of up to $500 to the NH Bar Association Pro Bono Referral Program using the convenient checkbox on the bar dues invoice. Will you please consider making a contribution this year?

Civil legal aid organizations across the country are struggling with funding cuts as more and more low-income people face court proceedings without being able to afford a lawyer. The NH Bar Association Pro Bono Referral Program matches volunteer lawyers with qualified clients who need help.

The NH Bar Association Ethics Committee has issued a new Advisory Opinion (#2014-15/10) about joint representation of clients in estate planning.
