PORTLAND and AUGUSTA, Maine, and MANCHESTER, N.H. — Bernstein Shur, one of northern New England’s largest law firms, announced the selection of five attorneys for the 2013 Katahdin Counsel Recognition Program.
The Katahdin Counsel was created by the Maine Supreme Judicial Court to recognize the pro bono work done by Maine lawyers and to encourage lawyers to provide legal services for Maine’s low-income and elderly residents. Attorneys must complete more than 50 pro bono hours in a year to qualify for the program, placing them in the top tier of those donating legal services.
“Contributing to our community through volunteer efforts and pro bono legal services supports not only our core values as a firm, but our employees’ values,” said Charles Miller, Bernstein Shur’s CEO. “We are honored to see our attorneys named Katahdin Counsel and recognized for their contributions.”
The following Bernstein Shur attorneys have been honored as Katahdin Counsel:
Eben M. Albert-Knopp of Portland, Maine
Christopher G. Aslin of Contoocook, New Hampshire
Brita Forssberg of Falmouth, Maine
Jack H. Montgomery of South Freeport, Maine
