Donna Ginzl was 1 of 398 attorneys recognized by the State Bar of Wisconsin and the Wisconsin Access to Justice Commission as a member of the 2014 Pro Bono Honor Society. Attorneys who receive this honor have distinguished themselves by providing at least 50 hours of qualifying pro bono legal services in 2014 to assist people of limited means.
When the Wisconsin Pro Bono Honor Society was created last year by the Wisconsin Access to Justice Commission and the State Bar of Wisconsin’s Pro Bono Program, 121 Wisconsin lawyers were honored for their pro bono contributions in 2013. A commitment to pro bono service is an important part of being a Wisconsin lawyer and a distinguishing feature of the legal profession.
“Volunteers are a key component of our legal services delivery system in Wisconsin and their services are a valuable contribution to the fair and effective functioning of our courts. The need is great, but time and resources are scarce.”
