Brinser and Wagner of Lebanon County Receive PBA William H. G. Warner Pro Bono Attorney of the Year Award, Nov. 9, 2017
Lebanon Attorneys Gerald J. Brinser and Keith D. Wagner of the Law Firm of Brinser Wagner received the PBA’s William H. G. Warner Pro Bono Attorney of the Year Award at the Lebanon County Bar Association’s Nov. 9 meeting and dinner. Wagner missed the ceremonies due to the demands of his family Christmas tree business, somehow appropriate on the coldest night since last winter. Neither lawyer missed anything when it came to helping the poor in 2017. The two lawyers have volunteered over 80 hours in the past year handling pro bono cases and represented 19 defendants in PFA actions during the year.
Nick Matash of MidPenn Legal Services said of the awardees, “Without Jerry and Keith, these parties would have otherwise not had the benefit of representation in their cases. In spite of the short deadlines in PFA matters, each attorney willingly accepted referrals”
The annual award, named for the late William H.G. Warner, Esq., recognizes an attorney (or attorneys) committed to providing legal services to the public and to helping to make pro bono legal service what it is today in Lebanon County. In the county in 2015-16, volunteer attorneys provided pro bono service to 324 clients in support of MidPenn Legal Services in custody, divorce, unemployment compensation, bankruptcy, child support and PFA cases.
