Manchester, NH —McLane, Graf, Raulerson and Middleton, Professional Association, recently received the Pro Bono County Award for Hillsborough North. The Pro Bono Referral Program presented the award at the Hillsborough County Professionalism Day, which took place at the Hillsborough County Superior Courthouse on February 14.

Attorney Linda Connell, Chair of McLane’s management committee, accepted the award on the firm’s behalf. “We are proud to accept this award from the Pro Bono Referral Program and look forward to continuing our pro bono service along with other pro bono volunteers from the Bar,” states Connell.

The award recognizes McLane’s outstanding efforts to provide legal services to low-income individuals who would not otherwise be able to afford representation. McLane is extremely committed to the Pro Bono Referral Program and strongly encourages its attorneys to work 30-50 hours per year on pro bono cases. Last year, the firm implemented a policy of accepting three new pro bono cases per month, and took 35 new cases, just one shy of its goal.

McLane, Graf, Raulerson & Middleton, Professional Association, is the largest law firm in New Hampshire. Founded in 1919, it serves a wide variety of clients from offices in Manchester, Nashua, Portsmouth and Concord.
