"It's a part of its environment, and it graces its environment rather than disgraces it."
-- Frank Lloyd Wright describing his revolutionary "prarie houses"
On Law Day I mentioned our new Strategic Plan, which will continue, expand and make more visible and accessible the many ways our members are serving the citizens of Montgomery County. These are efforts in addition to counseling or representing those who cannot afford counsel. Of course, we take great pride in our Pro Bono Program—it is a model for other local bars. Next month the County Executive is rolling out a new pro bono initiative to complement our program. It will encourage representation of children who arrive in the U.S. seeking refuge after escaping extreme violence, abuse and neglect in Central America, and you’ll hear more on it in a few weeks.
