Kaufman & Canoles receives Community Service Pro Bono Award.

Kaufman & Canoles is pleased to be among one of only three firms in the Commonwealth which was designated a VBA Community Service Sponsor Firm, meaning more than 50% of our lawyers qualified as 2004 VBA Pro Bono Servants and/or VBA Community Servants. These designations mean that the recognized lawyer devoted at least 50 hours of time in 2004 to either traditional community service work and/or to pro bono publico legal work.

Ran Randolph, chairman of the VBA Community Service Program, offered these words at a ceremony on July 25, 2005, where The Honorable Harry L. Carrico, Senior Justice Supreme Court of Virginia, presented the award to the firm. 'I would like to offer my heartfelt thanks to Rob Goodman and Nicole Duke, both of whom have served with distinction as members of the inaugural VBA Community Service Program Council. Nicole and Rob have distinguished themselves by serving in leadership capacities on the Council. They have represented our firm very well and have enhanced our statewide reputation for leadership in community service work and pro bono publico legal work. '

'Finally, I would like to thank the K&C staff that makes it possible for all of the lawyers to keep their professional lives straight enough to actually find the time to provide this service. Without your help, the firm would not have achieved this special status. Your own community service works with charity walks, fund drives, food bank support, little league fund-raisers and the like is an extension of a culture of giving and involvement here at K&C of which we should all be proud.' 'In short, this was a team effort. '
