Pro Bono

 

HONOR ROLL OF 
PRO BONO SERVICE PROVIDERS IN THE
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK U.S. BANKRUPTCY COURT
 
September 1, 2018 to August 31, 2019
  

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 148 debtors who otherwise would not have been able to afford legal representation.  Two attorneys provided pro bono legal services in 10 or more cases:  Michael J. O'Connor (29), and Michael J. Toomey (13).  In addition, under the supervision of Lee E. Woodard, law students at Syracuse University College of Law represented 13 debtors pro bono.  The efforts of these attorneys and students to assist with the unmet legal needs of the economically disadvantaged are to be commended. 

We also thank those attorneys that provided single issue advice to litigants, mediated disputes, contributed to CLE programs, presented financial literacy programs, and participated in civic programs at the court and in schools in our district.  Your commitment to the profession and the community are sincerely appreciated.

The Judges are grateful for your willingness to give of your professional time. 

 

 
Cynthia A. Platt, Clerk of Court
