Pro Bono Honor Roll

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

In honor of National Celebrate Pro Bono week, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Arizona recognizes the exceptional commitment and efforts of bankruptcy attorneys and their staff in our district who assist self-represented parties.  The District of Arizona has the highest self-represented filing rate in the Ninth Circuit. Pro bono volunteers help those debtors and creditors navigate through the complicated bankruptcy system. These attorneys greatly benefit the Court and all its litigants. We are especially grateful as volunteers continue their services remotely during the pandemic. 
 
This is the Court’s tenth 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; Southern Arizona Legal Aid, Step Up to Justice and Community Legal Services Volunteer Lawyer debt advice clinic and direct representation of low-income Chapter 7 debtors.  The Court thanks each and every one of the following volunteers for their continued support in assisting self-represented parties in our district.  
 

 United States Bankruptcy Judges, District of Arizona

1The Honor Roll lists will be updated annually. If you wish to volunteer for a pro bono program, please contact Tami Johnson, Pro Se Law Clerk, at tami_johnson@azb.uscourts.gov.
