THE NERY ARRANO PRO BONO AWARD
The Women’s Bar Foundation, through its pro-bono projects, is known throughout the Boston legal community for effective and compassionate advocacy. Our work is possible due to an incredible network of volunteer attorneys who give freely of their time to represent low-income clients who are in difficult and often life-threatening situations. Each year, we honor the dedication of a few outstanding volunteer attorneys with the Nery Arrano Pro Bono Award.
THIS YEAR'S HONOREES ARE:
Paula Berg, Law Office of Paula Berg
Rebecca G. Neale, Bedford Family Lawyer
YOUR IMPACT: OUR CLIENTS
The WBF provides legal assistance to low-income individuals with critical legal needs. Each day, domestic abuse survivors face an overwhelming and complex legal system. Having an attorney at their side when facing challenging circumstances can make all the difference. Our WBF-trained volunteer attorneys ensures that these clients are not alone. One client shares the difference her WBF-trained attorney made in her life.
"I feel immensely blessed to work with my pro-bono attorney. The day she took my case, I felt I was no longer alone in the struggle...With immense gratitude, I appreciate this organization for helping me so much."
*Name changed to protect the survivor’s identity.
