March 2005 County Bar Recognition Award to Bucks County Bar Association

Project: Pro Bono Military Assistance Program — Contact: Heather Martin, Executive Director The program was created to provide free legal services to military personnel and their families who reside in Bucks County and are currently stationed in Afghanistan or Iraq. The pro bono services are available for personal and family matters caused/affected by the individual’s military service. The BCBA’s goal is to meet the specific legal needs of military personnel through pro bono efforts. This assistance, however, will not be provided to the detriment of, or to create a hardship for, the individuals serving. Since many county residents are deployed from Willow Grove Naval Air Base, officials there have been notified about the program and have expressed their appreciation and support.
