Three Berks County Lawyers to Receive Pennsylvania Bar Association Immigration Law Pro Bono Award

HARRISBURG (May 10, 2016) - Pennsylvania Bar Association Immigration Law Pro Bono Award will be presented to Reading-based lawyers Bridget Cambria, Carol Anne Donohoe and Jacquelyn M. Kline during the statewide association's May 13 Annual Meeting Awards Breakfast in Hershey.

The award recognizes PBA members practicing immigration law who have provided a unique service that has resulted in significant provision of legal services on a pro bono basis to the neediest of foreign nationals. The winners are selected in consultation with PBA leadership. The award is sponsored by the business immigration law firm of Green and Spiegel LLC.

Cambria, Donohoe and Kline have represented many immigrant families in the Berks County Residential Center, based in Bern Township, who are involved in immigration removal proceedings. The three lawyers have represented more than 200 asylum-seeking clients and have won many asylum and withholding cases.

Green and Spiegel LLC has made a donation of $1,500 in honor of the three lawyers to the Pennsylvania Bar Foundation, the charitable affiliate of the PBA, to benefit the PBA Pro Bono Office.

Founded in 1895, the Pennsylvania Bar Association strives to promote justice, professional excellence and respect for the law; improve public understanding of the legal system; facilitate access to legal services; and serve the 27,000 lawyers who are members of the association.
