As the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center celebrated its 40th anniversary this year, the December 2018 issue of Washington Lawyer honored all the great work the organization has done and continues to do in the community. The organization recruits, trains, and mobilizes volunteer attorneys to take pro bono cases serving individuals living in poverty who are at risk of losing their homes, their livelihoods, and their families. The center also helps small businesses and community-based nonprofits needing legal assistance.
The December 2018 issue highlighted the ways attorneys partner with the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center to help individuals and businesses in the community. One of the articles featured Art Enables, an organization providing artists with disabilities the creative and vocational training needed to become proud, professional artists. Bass, Berry & Sims attorneys Mike Gibson and Katie Smalley have both offered pro bono legal services to Art Enables and the article highlighted their contributions.
The article about Art Enables was published in the December 2018 issue of Washington Lawyer and is available online (see page 23).
