Volunteers

MVLS would not be able to change the lives of thousands of Marylanders each year without our committed volunteer attorneys, and we think it's important to recognize these efforts. Below are exceptional attorneys that have been recognized over the years for truly embracing pro bono and providing access to justice for many of our clients. In addition to the award winners listed below, we're grateful for the generous volunteers who take not one, not two, not three, but ten or more pro bono cases year!  The names of these special volunteers in FY16 can be found here. 20 Year Volunteer Award Winners 2016: Constance Hare 2016: Darren Margolis 2015: Robert W.
