The United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Massachusetts takes pleasure in recognizing the efforts of those attorneys who provide legal assistance, without compensation, to those who face substantial economic hardship (and often language barriers) so that they are able to navigate through the bankruptcy process. These services greatly benefit the bankruptcy system of our nation and all of its components. Those volunteer efforts include pro bono service in one or more of the following areas: reaffirmation agreement clinics, bankruptcy seminars and training for volunteer lawyers, mentoring of volunteers, legal representation for qualifying parties in bankruptcy cases and adversary proceedings and participation in financial literacy programs in high schools throughout the state. Below you will find the annual Honor Roll which recognizes volunteers for their current and continued support in serving those in need who appear before us. You will also find a link to those who have received a Pro Bono Public Award for notable pro bono assistance.
