CHARLOTTE, N.C—Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP is pleased to announce that seven attorneys in the firm’s Charlotte office have been named to the 2019 class of the North Carolina Pro Bono Honor Society. Robert A. Cox Jr., Matthew S. DeAntonio, Dexter C. Hobbs Jr., Erin Jane Illman, Dana Lumsden, Steve Snyder and Bridget V. Warren each provided 50 or more hours of pro bono legal services in 2019 to North Carolinians who are unable to pay. The number of Bradley attorneys who have qualified for this recognition has more than tripled since 2018.
The North Carolina Pro Bono Honor Society is administered by the North Carolina Pro Bono Resource Center, which was launched in 2016 as a program of the North Carolina Equal Access to Justice Commission. The commission works to increase North Carolina attorney pro bono legal service as a way to meet the legal needs of people of low-income and modest means in the state.
Attorneys in Bradley’s Charlotte office are actively involved in a number of pro bono efforts, including working with the Safe Alliance’s Victim Assistance/Legal Representation Program, which helps victims of domestic violence who seek Domestic Violence Protective Orders, and supporting the Charlotte Center for Legal Advocacy, which provides a wide range of civil legal assistance to low-income people in the Charlotte metropolitan area and west-central North Carolina.
