Monroe County's Martino Receives 2015 Pro Bono Award, March 11, 2016
David Martino, Monroe County's 2015 PBA Pro Bono Volunteer of the Year, was honored with the award presentation during the Monroe County Bar Association's quarterly meeting at Stroudsmoor Country Inn on March 11. Surrounded by fellow MCBA members, the Brodheadsville lawyer accepted accolades from MCBA Pro Bono Chair Mark Primrose, who said, "The word no is not in his [Martino's] vocabulary." A man of few words, Martino's fluent generosity was evident over the past three years during which he provided free services to eight cases for Stroudsburg-based civil legal aid organization North Penn Legal Services (NPLS), compiling more than 25 hours assisting low-income county residents in need. Calling Martino, "A very kind and compassionate attorney," NPLS Stroudsburg manager Jim Butz said Martino "does an exceptional job on a very consistent basis." Primrose closed with thanks to Martino for "setting an example for us all."
