Holland & Knight has been recognized with the Outstanding Services Award by the American Bar Association’s (ABA) Military Pro Bono Project.
It is the eighth consecutive year that the firm has received the award – it has received the award every year since its inception in 2012.
In addition, Holland & Knight partners Dane McKaughan (pictured, left) and Jerome Hoffman (pictured, right) were individually honored with the Outstanding Services Award for their “extraordinary pro bono services” in 2019.
The ABA Military Pro Bono Project accepts case referrals from military attorneys on behalf of junior-enlisted, active-duty military personnel and their families with civil legal problems, and it works to place these cases with pro bono attorneys where the legal assistance is needed.
To receive the Outstanding Services Award, a law firm or corporate law department must have its attorneys accept five or more pro bono case referrals originating with the ABA Military Pro Bono Project in the applicable calendar year. Individual lawyers who receive the award must have accepted three or more pro bono case referrals or accepted one or more pro bono case referrals, reported the closure of one or more cases and reported to the project that the total pro bono time spent on the closed cases is 50 hours or more.
