Monroe County Martino receives 2015 Pro Bono Award, March 11, 2016 Monroe County 2015 PBA Pro Bono Volunteer David Martino was honored at the awards ceremony at the Monroe County Bar Association quarterly meeting at the Stroudsmoor Country Inn on March 11. Surrounded by other MCBA members, the Brodheadsville lawyer accepted recognition from MCBA pro bono president Mark Primrose, who said, “The word no is not in his [Martino] vocabulary.” Martino, a man of few words, has shown up for the past three years, handling eight cases for free for the Stroudsburg-based civil legal aid organization North Penn Legal Services (NPLS) and gathering more than 25 hours for low-income county residents in need. Jim Butz, director of NPLS Stroudsburg, called Martino a “very kind and compassionate lawyer” and said Martino “does an exceptional job on a very consistent basis.” Primrose concluded by thanking Martino for “setting an example for all of us.” Below (pictured left) Martino accepts the award and (pictured right) Mark Primrose, pro bono president of MCBA, congratulates Martino. The Monroe County Bar Association (MCBA) offers three referral programs, including the Pro-Bono Limited Service Program.
All cases must be located in Monroe County.
