Andrew W. Barbin was honored Feb. 10, 2018 with a PBA Pro Bono Award for his broad and diverse service to those in need at the Widener Commonwealth School of Law. An active member of both the Cumberland County and Dauphin County Bar Associations, as well as the Pennsylvania Bar Association, Attorney Barbin was fittingly honored at Widener's Wills for Heroes event as he has been one of the most consistent volunteers for the WFH program, often traveling to distant sites to offer expert support for the program that provides estate planning documents to first responders and veterans. He volunteers at more than 10 WFH programs a year.
