Three Pierce Atwood attorneys -- Margaret LePage, Katie Minervino and Nolan Reichl -- were named to the 2013 Katahdin Counsel in recognition for their pro bono work. The Katahdin Counsel recognizes lawyers who personally complete 50 or more hours of pro bono work in one year.
The Katahdin Counsel Recognition Program was created by the Maine Supreme Judicial Court, in response to a proposal by the Justice Action Group, to focus the public's attention on the critical role that pro bono publico plays in maintaining a vibrant civil justice system. The purpose of the Katahdin Counsel Recognition Program is twofold. First, to establish an annual process for recognizing and honoring the pro bono work of Maine's lawyers. Second, to encourage more lawyers to provide such services for Maine's low-income residents to help to meet their growing unmet legal needs.
