The law firm Warner Norcross & Judd LLP has again been recognized by the State Bar of Michigan with a 2017 Pro Bono Circle of Excellence Award.
The firm, which has eight offices across Michigan, was recognized at the leadership level for the pro-bono contributions of partners, associates and of-counsel attorneys. To be recognized at the leadership level, law firms must provide free or reduced-fee representation to low-income individuals or organizations and/or contribute a minimum of $500 per attorney to the State Bar’s Access to Justice Fund, which provides civil legal services to persons of limited means.
“We believe in contributing in meaningful ways to the communities where we live and work,” said Douglas A. Dozeman, managing partner. “Providing legal services to those in need on a pro bono basis helps ensure that everyone in our community can have access to legal representation. We are again honored to be recognized by the State Bar of Michigan for our pro-bono contributions.”
Warner attorneys provide direct client representation, serve on boards for legal aid programs, engage in community legal education programs and advise nonprofit and low-income public interest groups. In addition, the firm makes an annual financial contribution to the Access to Justice Fund.
By providing discerning and proactive legal advice, Warner Norcross + Judd builds a better partnership with its clients. Warner is a corporate law firm with 230 attorneys practicing in nine offices throughout Michigan: Grand Rapids, Detroit, Midland, Macomb County, Kalamazoo, Muskegon, Lansing, Holland and Bloomfield Hills.
