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, pro se clinics, bankruptcy seminars and training for volunteer lawyers, mentoring of volunteers, legal representation for qualifying parties in bankruptcy cases and adversary proceedings and volunteer mediation in qualifying adversary proceedings. The following pro bono volunteers are recognized for their current and continued support in serving the people of our district.
