Amanda Feder Receives GBA’s 2016 Pro Bono Award
The Greensboro Bar Association’s 2016 Pro Bono Award was presented to Amanda C. Feder at the October 20 member meeting. Amanda has represented multiple clients referred from Legal Aid with a wide variety of legal problems. She has accepted 20 cases from Legal Aid over the past year, providing more than 100 hours of pro bono service. She has handled four housing cases (including one jury trial), nine expungements, six powers of attorney, and one will preparation matter. Legal Aid went on to point out that six of the nine expungements our award recipient handled resulted in completely clean records, giving these persons a fresh start and significantly improving their chances of obtaining or maintaining employment, housing and other benefits. By any standard, these actions certainly qualify as outstanding pro bono service.
