Chief Judge Margaret Cangilos-Ruiz, Judge Diane Davis, and Judge Robert E. Littlefield, Jr. wish to recognize and thank the attorneys and student practitioners listed below for their outstanding pro bono contributions.  During the last 12 months, these attorneys assisted 203 debtors who otherwise would not have been able to afford legal representation.  Several attorneys provided pro bono legal services in 10 or more cases:  Michael J. O'Connor (32), Michael J. Toomey (15), Marc S. Ehrlich (14), Jonathan Warner (12), Sean Patrick Moran (12), and M. Lettie Dickerson (10).  In addition, under the supervision of Lee E. Woodard, law students at Syracuse University College of Law represented 16 debtors pro bono.  Joann Sternheimer provided pro bono services as a mediator during this period, and Guy Van Baalen, Lee Woodard, Thomas Kennedy, and Susan Esce stepped forward to support financial literacy and civic education outreach efforts within the greater Northern District of New York Community.  The efforts of these attorneys to assist with the ever-growing unmet legal needs of low-income and vulnerable populations is to be commended. 

The Judges are grateful for your commitment to the community and your willingness to give of your professional time.
