A luncheon was held earlier this month to thank the Anne Arundel County attorneys who volunteer for the Ask a Lawyer programs held in the Anne Arundel County Public Law Library, the North County Area Public Library and for the annual Anne Arundel County Homeless Resource Day.
The luncheon catered by the Main Ingredient was sponsored by the Anne Arundel County Local Pro Bono Committee and provided by the Anne Arundel Bar Association and the Anne Arundel County Circuit Court. Volunteer attorneys were honored by Anne Arundel County Administrative Judge Nancy-Davis Loomis and Hon. Clayton Greene of the Court of Appeals.
With this being the time of year when attorneys are required to report their pro bono hours to the Maryland Court of Appeals, some program statistics for 2011 are in order. There were 44 attorneys who provided 201 hours of service to 479 clients through the Ask a Lawyer Programs. Volunteer attorneys received certificates to thank them for their services and to act as a record of their program hours.
