 Firm earns leadership level in Pro Bono Circle of Excellence

Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn LLP has earned a place on the State Bar of Michigan’s inaugural list of firms at the leadership level in its annual Pro Bono Circle of Excellence. Being at the leadership level indicates that Honigman has achieved 100 percent participation at the highest level of the voluntary pro bono standard set by the Bar. Qualifying activities include volunteer legal services for low-income individuals and organizations, and financial contributions to support legal services for those clients.  

“Honigman has been recognized by the State Bar for its pro bono work every year since the inception of the Circle of Excellence 10 years ago and we are proud to be an inaugural member of the leadership level,” said Jennifer Belveal, chair of the firm’s Pro Bono Committee. “Throughout our firm’s 65 year history, we have had a strong commitment to provide services to people who would otherwise be without representation in important legal matters.”
