National Pro Bono Week Celebration Reception Hosted by Lang, Richert & Patch

Earlier this year, the Board of Governors of the State Bar of California adopted a resolution recognizing the week of October 25 through October 31, 2009, as the first annual National Pro Bono Week Celebration. Lang, Richert & Patch was pleased to host Voluntary Legal Services Program’s and Fresno County Bar Association Pro Bono Section’s reception celebrating National Celebrate Pro Bono Week on Wednesday, October 28, 2009. Ana de Alba of Lang, Richert & Patch, worked closely with Voluntary Legal Services Program and Fresno County Bar Association Pro Bono Section to put this event together.  The reception was well attended by private and public sector attorneys, judges, and community leaders and recognized local attorneys for their ongoing pro bono contributions.  It also served to encourage others to engage in pro bono work and provide financial support to make a difference in the lives of the poor and disenfranchised.
