Pro Bono Recognition

CCCBA’s Pro Bono Committee is proud to present two awards at the Bar Fund Benefit September 29, 2022.

The Justice James J. MARCHIANO DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARD

The Justice James J. Marchiano Distinguished Service Award was established to honor Justice Marchiano’s legacy of service to the community.  This award recognizes a CCCBA member who volunteers their time, either in a legal or non-legal capacity, to improve the circumstances of others and changes lives for the better in our community.

We are thrilled to announce that the recipient of the second annual Justice James J. Marchiano Distinguished Service Award is Beth Mora!

Beth will accept the award at the 2022 Bar Fund Benefit held on September 29 at the Lafayette Veterans Memorial Center. Reserve your spot here.

2021 Inaugural Award Recipient:  Ray Robinson

Thank you to our Pro Bono Honor Roll recipients for giving of your valuable time and expertise to benefit our community.  Your efforts support our community in myriad ways.

We know there are many more CCCBA members who help out in their communities in many ways.  Start tracking your hours for next year’s Pro Bono Honor Roll!  Any CCCBA member who has volunteered 50 or more hours in a legal or non-legal capacity over the period September 1, 2022 – August 31, 2023 is eligible for the Pro Bono Honor Roll. Use this excel form to track your hours.

Many CCCBA members are already involved in many great organizations and causes.  It is inspiring to learn about their experiences helping others and the differences they make – both small and big – in the lives of others.  By recognizing these individuals, the CCCBA hopes to show how much we appreciate their service and encourage all members to contribute time and hit (or exceed) the 50-hour annual target.

As attorneys, we have the knowledge, training and skill set to improve the lives of others and make a difference.  The Pro Bono Committee would like all members to consider the goal of contributing their many talents by touching the life of at least one person in need.
