Pro Bono Call to Action Issued to Maryland’s Legal Community
July 08, 2021
The Maryland Attorney General, Maryland Judiciary, Maryland State Bar Association – MSBA, and Maryland Access to Justice Commission Issue Pro Bono Call to Action to Maryland’s legal community.
“As COVID becomes less of a health risk, the risk of financial devastation looms large for many families who have suffered job loss, other revenue loss, and increased expenses due to the pandemic. Without pro bono assistance, far too many of these families are at risk of housing and economic destabilization. The Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service, and other legal services programs, stand ready to help our neighbors get back on their feet. We hope Maryland attorneys will join us” said Susan Francis, executive director, Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service.
