McGlinchey Stafford Pro Bono Awards and Donation
On April 10, 2013 the law firm of McGlinchey Stafford made a donation of $2500 to the Baton Rouge Bar Foundation’s Pro Bono Project. As part of the firm’s pro bono initiative, this year the firm’s pro bono committee created the “Dermot S. McGlinchey Commitment to Pro Bono Award” in honor of the firm’s late founder, Dermot S. McGlinchey. Dermot was the first president of the Louisiana Bar Foundation (1985-89), and with his LBF colleagues established The Pro Bono Project in 1986.
The award, which provides for a donation in the recipients’ names to the charity of their choice, is given annually to the associate with the most pro bono hours and to the attorney with the most overall pro bono hours. This year’s award recipients were Amanda Stout, an associate in Baton Rouge and Mary Joseph, a Member in Baton Rouge. Both recipients decided unanimously to donate their award donation dollars to the Baton Rouge Bar Foundation’s Pro Bono Project to support their excellent programs and services including Ask-A-Lawyer, Thirst For Justice, and Wills for Heroes, and the referral of individual cases to local lawyers.
