CBF Awards Highlight Pro Bono Attorneys
Attorney Trisha Rich was awarded the Maurice Weigle Exceptional Young Lawyer Award for her pro bono work and spearheading the Attorney Defense Initiative. She was one of eight who were honored for their efforts in helping make legal representation more accessible for those who can't afford it otherwise.
“Our profession is truly a noble one," said Ms. Rich. "I truly believe as lawyers we have a moral obligation and responsibility to help the people in our communities and provide access to justice for the poor."
