Keith Richard receives commendation for pro bono work

Associate Attorney Keith Richard was recently recognized as one of the 2018 recipients of the Katahdin Counsel Recognition Program. Katahdin Counsel is a distinction awarded annually to Maine attorneys that dedicate 50 or more hours of their time to represent persons unable to afford an attorney.

Attorney Richard handled matters referred by Conservation Law Foundation’s Legal Food Hub and the Volunteer Lawyer’s Project.

The Maine Supreme Judicial Court launched the Katahdin Counsel program in 2011 to highlight the contributions of Maine attorneys to further access to justice and to encourage others to dedicate time for Mainers that would otherwise lack representation.
