In 2021, the Minnesota Judicial Branch, Minnesota State Bar Association and civil legal aid programs launched the “Lawyers Step Up for Minnesota” campaign to help fellow Minnesotans with pro bono legal needs during the pandemic. On Jan. 25, 2022, the Minnesota Supreme Court recognized attorneys nominated by the legal aid programs for stepping up during this critical time.
Partner Dan Prokott, counsel Dan Donovan and associates Elie Biel, Mark Rosenfeld and Shane Solinger were among those recognized for their pro bono contributions. The event also included small group breakout sessions with Minnesota Supreme Court justices to foster conversation and connection among the attorneys and program staff. Pro bono senior manager Jodie Boderman served as facilitator in one of the sessions.
