The New York State Bar Association named Willkie as one of its Empire State Counsel® Law Firm Honorees for its 2017 pro bono contributions. The honor is based on the total number of pro bono hours completed by attorneys who performed 50 hours or more of pro bono legal services either through direct legal representation of low-income/vulnerable individuals, or donated free legal services to certain organizations that provide assistance for vulnerable and/or low-income populations in 2017.
Each year, the NYSBA acknowledges the exemplary pro bono work of several law firms as Empire State Counsel honorees at its annual Justice for All Luncheon.
Partner Richard Mancino accepts the award on behalf of Willkie.
