Twelve attorneys from Phillips Lytle LLP were honored by the New York State Bar Association for their pro bono work under the auspices of the Empire State Counsel Program.
Established in 2006, the Empire State Council Program gives special recognition to NYSBA members who perform 50 or more hours of pro bono service during the calendar year.
Phillips Lytle attorneys cited include: William D. Christ, Spencer L. Durland, Chad W. Flansburg, Lawrence W. Gallick, Timothy W. Hoover, Myriah V. Jaworski, Kenneth A. Manning, Susan M. Marriott, Gregory L. Peterson, Jennifer A. Shah, William J. Simon and Geanne M. Zanatta. They are from the Rochester, Buffalo and Jamestown offices.
In 2013, Phillips Lytle donated more than 2,473 hours of free legal assistance to individuals and nonprofit organizations that would not otherwise be able to afford attorney services.
The attorneys were honored during a luncheon on Jan. 30 at the Hilton New York in New York City as part of the state bar association’s annual meeting.
