Area lawyers honored for pro bono work

The Minnesota State Bar Association has recognized over 740 lawyers — including two from Becker County — who, in 2012, certified that they provided at least 50 hours of pro bono legal services annually to low income people at no fee and without expectation of a fee.

The Becker County attorneys are Sue Ann Lind and Charles Seuntjens, both of the Pemberton law firm.

These MSBA North Star Lawyers provided over 87,000 total hours of pro bono service with an estimated value of $17 million in free legal advice.

By donating their time and talent, they changed lives by helping people who otherwise could not afford counsel to achieve justice.
