Beasley Allen Lawyers James Lampkin, Evan Allen, Liz Eiland, and Aigner Kolom were recently recognized for their work on behalf of low-income residents in need of legal assistance in civil matters. The Beasley Allen Law Firm also was recognized for its outstanding participation in the Montgomery County Bar Foundation Volunteer Lawyers Program.
On Tuesday, Oct. 18, James Lampkin was honored for his tireless pro bono work by the Alabama Access to Justice Commission. The AAJC was created by the Supreme Court of Alabama in 2007 to serve as a coordinating entity for the legally underserved, legal community, social service providers and the private and public sectors.
The Montgomery County Bar Foundation Volunteer Lawyers Program held its inaugural Pro Bono Recognition Luncheon on Oct. 25 to recognize those law firms and individual attorneys who have provided free legal assistance to low-income Montgomery County residents facing civil legal issues.
Beasley Allen was one of three firms in Montgomery to receive the highest level of recognition, the Gold Medallion award, based on the number of case referrals taken, the number of advice and counsel clinics attended, and the number of hours of free legal assistance rendered. In addition, three Beasley Allen Lawyers were presented with the Medal of the Samaritan in recognition of their outstanding participation and hours of pro bono service – Evan Allen, Liz Eiland and Aigner Kolom.
“At Beasley Allen we work day in and day out representing those who need our help the most,” said Beasley Allen Principal & Managing Attorney, Tom Methvin. “It is no surprise that James, Evan, Liz, and Aigner were recognized for their work.”
October is National Pro Bono Month.
