ABOUT US

Pro Bono


Hand Arendall is deeply committed to improving access to justice for the low-income citizens of Alabama. Its lawyers have been involved in the local and state bars' pro bono programs since they were organized. The firm was one of the first in the state to adopt a policy crediting associates for pro bono work as for paying work, and over fifteen years ago the Mobile office decided that all of its lawyers would participate in the local pro bono program. Hand Arendall was named Pro Bono Law Firm of the Year by the Alabama State Bar in 2002.

Lisa Cooper is president of the Mobile Bar Association Volunteer Lawyers Program board, and Henry Callaway previously served seven years in that position. Buzzy Riis and Henry Callaway have received the local Volunteer Lawyer of the Year Award; Wes Hunter, Greg Jones, Paul Beckmann, and Craig Campbell have also each received the Distinguished Service Award for their pro bono work. The Alabama Bar Association recognized Henry Callaway as state Volunteer Lawyer of the Year in 2010, and in 2011 the American Bar Association named him as recipient of its Pro Bono Publicus Award for his work toward increasing access to civil justice.

In addition to its regular mix of pro bono work, Hand Arendall currently represents numerous low-income citizens who have been sued on old credit card debt that has usually been assigned and is often time-barred. The firm also represents a death row inmate pro bono in post-petition proceedings to set aside his conviction because of ineffective assistance of counsel.
