Minnesota attorneys generous in pro bono

The Minnesota State Bar Association has recognized over 952 lawyers who, in 2013, 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.

Elizabeth Walker was named to the list in Becker County.

These MSBA North Star Lawyers provided over 108,500 total hours of pro bono service with an estimated value of $21,700,000 in free legal advice. By generously donating their time and talent, they changed lives by helping people who otherwise could not afford counsel to achieve justice.

With over 16,000 members, the MSBA is the state’s largest voluntary organization of attorneys, providing continuing legal education and public service opportunities for lawyers, and assistance to the legal system.
