Memphis Bar Association Recognizes Baker Donelson Attorneys for Pro Bono Efforts

(Memphis, TN / November 4, 2013) Three Baker Donelson have been recognized by the Memphis Bar Association (MBA) for their pro bono efforts. 

Blair Evans and Kristine Roberts were among the honorees recognized during the MBA's Celebrate Pro Bono Reception on October 29, 2013, honoring those who have made a difference in the Memphis community through the legal profession. Ms. Evans and Ms. Roberts were recognized for their dedication to the "Attorney of the Day" program, through which volunteer attorneys meet with walk-in clients at the Shelby County Courthouse one afternoon a week to provide advice, counsel, referrals and sometimes extended services.

Through its commitment to pro bono representation, Baker Donelson provides legal services to groups and individuals likely to be marginalized in the legal system due to economic barriers.  Over the years, the Firm's attorneys have provided a variety of counsel to many populations, including immigrants, refugees, the elderly and the impoverished.  Baker Donelson's efforts include work on a wide range of matters, such as advocating for the homeless and organizations that serve the homeless, death penalty litigation, providing corporate legal services to non-profit organizations, and much more.
