The Milwaukee Bar Association recognized an individual attorney, an organization and a law student for outstanding pro bono work at its annual Pro Bono Publico awards Thursday. The awards came during the 10th annual State of the Court Luncheon at the Wisconsin Club in Milwaukee.
The recipients of the 2013 Pro Bono Publico awards were:
• Thomas Shriner of Foley & Lardner LLP, who was recognized as one of Wisconsin’s leading business, commercial and bankruptcy litigators.
• The Eastern District of Wisconsin Bar Association’s Pro Bono Committee, which launched its Pro Se Help Line in 2013. The program matches pro se civil litigants with experienced federal court practitioners for limited-purpose representation.
• Bryant Park, a third-year student at Marquette University Law School who assists at the Marquette Volunteer Legal Clinic. Park helped launch services focused on the Hmong population.
