Legal Aid of Marin and the Marin County Bar Association are proud to co-host the 2018 Pro Bono Appreciation Luncheon honoring our community’s outstanding pro bono providers of the past year. The special awards luncheon will be held at noon on Wednesday, March 28 in the Four Points by Sheraton in San Rafael.
Featured keynote speaker, attorney J. Timothy Nardell (Nardell Chitsaz & Associates LLP), he is a graduate of UC Berkeley Boalt Hall School of Law, has been a civil litigator for over 20 years and has been recognized as a Super Lawyer for Northern California every year for the last decade. Tim contacted Legal Aid about how he could best help Marin’s low income immigrant residents. He immediately jumped in and has taken on several housing and employment matters from Legal Aid of
Marin on behalf of low income and immigrant workers and tenants. After personally inspecting an apartment complex and meeting with tenants and residents about habitability issues, Tim agreed to represent the tenants in their fight for better housing. In addition, Tim brought to quick and successful resolution the wrongful termination and wage violation case of a low income senior who was extremely grateful for Tim’s efficient and excellent results.
The luncheon will also honor 81 attorneys and 16 community volunteers with special recognition given to recipients of the Wiley W. Manuel Award. Issued by the State Bar of California to those with 50 or more hours of pro bono service, the award is named in honor of Wiley W. Manuel, an associate justice of the Supreme Court of California from 1977-1981. Judge Manuel was the first African American to serve on the high court.
Tickets are $50 for MCBA members; $60 for non-members and can be purchased through the Marin County Bar Association.
