Kelly Otis Welcomed to the 2020 North Carolina Pro Bono Honor Society!
Blanco Tackabery has a long-standing commitment to performing pro bono legal work each year, 2020 being no exception. In February, we shared that Chad Archer had been recognized by the NC Bar for his pro bono contribution. Today, we are pleased to announce that Kelly Otis has been included in the 2020 North Carolina Pro Bono Honor Society. She has been recognized for her “substantial and valuable legal contribution” by providing more than 50 hours of pro bono legal services to North Carolinians last year.
“Each member of this year’s cohort of the Honor Society receives a certificate from the Supreme Court of North Carolina in recognition of their valuable contributions to the people of North Carolina,” according to the recent press release by the NC Pro Bono Resource Center. “This group of attorneys provided nearly 55,000 hours of pro bono legal services in 2020 to North Carolinians living in poverty. In all, 1,648 attorneys, or more than 5.5% of active attorneys in North Carolina, shared information about their pro bono volunteerism, together providing more than 67,750 hours of pro bono legal services in 2020.”
Please join us in celebrating and congratulating Kelly in her efforts to provide equal justice to the people of North Carolina through pro bono legal services.
