Miller Canfield Honored by Michigan Advocacy Program as Leadership Member of Pro Bono Circle of Excellence
DETROIT, MI - The law firm of Miller Canfield is pleased to announce that it has been honored as a leadership member of the Pro Bono Circle of Excellence at the Michigan Advocacy Program’s 50th anniversary, which was held on October 29th 2015, in Ann Arbor. “We are honored to receive this award and appreciate the privilege of working with The Michigan Advocacy Program and contributing to their important work,” said Mike McGee, CEO of Miller Canfield. “The firm is proud to continue its long history of supporting local communities by providing pro bono legal services.”
The MAP (formerly Legal Services of South Central Michigan) provides access to the justice system for those who need it the most. What is now the Michigan Advocacy Program began 50 years ago as a number of independent local legal aid societies in Ann Arbor, Battle Creek, Jackson, and Lansing. Over time, these local programs merged and became Legal Services of South Central Michigan — which provides free civil legal aid to low income individuals in 13 counties in south and central Michigan and has offices in Ann Arbor, Battle Creek, Jackson, Lansing and Monroe. LSSCM is the Legal Services Corporation and the Michigan State Bar Foundation grantee across all of these 13 counties.
