May 22, 2017
Maslon is pleased to announce the recognition of 24 attorneys as 2016 North Star Lawyers by the Minnesota State Bar Association. Started in 2013, the program recognizes members who provide 50 hours or more of pro bono legal services per year to those who otherwise could not afford representation.
Maslon attorneys recognized as 2016 North Star Lawyers include:
Melissa Muro LaMere
In addition to the MSBA's North Star Lawyers' program, Maslon's long-standing commitment to pro bono work includes participation in the Pro Bono Challenge: a pact formed by the nation's largest law firms to significantly increase the amount of pro bono work being performed by their organizations. More than 67% of Maslon's attorneys participated in qualifying pro bono work in 2016, helping the firm exceed the Law Firm Pro Bono Challenge requirement of committing three percent of the firm's billable hours to giving back to the community. In total, Maslon attorneys contributed 4,239 hours to pro bono service in 2016.
