Detroit Bar Association Honors Wilson Elser with Pro Bono Service Award

June 19, 2020

Wilson Elser has been selected to receive the Pro Bono Service Award by the Detroit Bar Association. The award mentions the firm’s Detroit area pro bono work and singled out Cara Swindlehurst (Associate-Michigan). “The award is not for one particular pro bono matter but for our firm’s work with the Detroit Bar Association Access to Justice Committee,” said Cara. “It was for a culmination of our pro bono participation, including helping Detroit Legal Services Clinic and Pope Francis Center HELP clinic, and working on expungement cases with Lakeshore Legal Aid.”
John Eads, Regional Managing Partner in Michigan, added, “Cara and all the attorneys in our office have done a great job on pro bono matters. Devoting time to this work is an important part of what we do as lawyers. We are proud to be honored by the Detroit Bar Association for our pro bono work.”

The firm will receive the Pro Bono Service award at the Detroit Bar Annual Dinner on August 13 at the Detroit Golf Club.
