Pro Bono Honor Roll

Recognition of Pro Bono Volunteers in the United States Bankruptcy Court, District of Arizona

 In honor of National Pro Bono Celebration week, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Arizona recognizes the exceptional commitment and efforts of bankruptcy attorneys in our district who assist self-represented parties. The District of Arizona has the second highest self-represented filing rate in the nation. Pro bono volunteers help those debtors and creditors navigate through the complicated bankruptcy system. These attorneys greatly benefit the Court and all of its litigants.

This is the Court’s fifth year recognizing bankruptcy attorneys who give back to the community. The pro bono services recognized this year include volunteer commitment to one or more of the following programs: Bankruptcy Court Pro Bono Panel (consultation and representation in adversaries and contested matters); Bankruptcy Court Self Help Center; Friends of the Court Reaffirmation Programs; Chapter 13 Expert Panel; and the Southern Arizona Legal Aid and Community Legal Services Volunteer Lawyer Program representation in individual Chapter 7 cases. The Court thanks each of the following Pro Bono volunteers for their current and continued support in assisting self-represented parties in our district.1
