“Kilpatrick Stockton Pro Bono Efforts Set New Firm Record”

Good work by this Atlanta firm & kudos for a paralegal:

"Kilpatrick Stockton LLP announces the firm’s third annual pro bono awards to recognize outstanding contributions to the firm’s pro bono efforts. The awards highlight a second record-breaking year for the firm, with more than 27,500 pro bono hours in 2005, a value of $8.2 million.

“’Pro bono is an essential element of the firm,’ said Debbie Segal, Kilpatrick Stockton Pro Bono Partner. ‘These awards recognize our attorneys’ strong commitment to helping those in our surrounding communities who otherwise would have very limited access to representation in the legal system. Their dedication has made a positive impact on many lives.’


Pro Bono Paralegal of the Year Award: Nancy Edwards was recognized for her diligent work on Grandparent Adoption cases. She spent 121 pro bono hours working on these cases, well over the paralegal goal of 25 pro bono hours each year."

You go, Nancy!
