According to the Alaska Bar Association pro bono volunteerism is the shortest route to protecting equal justice in Alaska. It improves the public image of the legal profession. It supports opportunities for excellent lawyering by training and mentoring less experienced practitioners. It challenges attorneys to hone their craft in new areas. It's a professional obligation that changes lives and makes a difference for clients and attorneys alike.
We at Walker & Eakes LLC take seriously the obligations and privileges associated with pro bono work. We have maintained a consistent level of cases exclusively referred by the Alaska Network on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault.
In May of 2007, Walker & Eakes LLC was humbled to receive the 2007 Bryan P. Timbers Pro Bono Law Firm Award from Chief Justice Fabe at the Alaska Bar Conference.
