Alston & Bird Honored for Pro Bono Leadership in Dallas

For the fourth consecutive year, Alston & Bird has been honored by the Dallas Volunteer Attorney Program (DVAP) for its pro bono leadership.

For 2021, DVAP has recognized Alston & Bird with multiple honors, including its “Silver Award for Pro Bono Service” for Dallas firms with 50 lawyers or fewer. The award reflects Alston & Bird’s long-standing commitment to pro bono, public interest, and community service work in Dallas, including staffing DVAP clinics, handling numerous consumer and family law matters, representing asylum seekers, and advising nonprofits.

In addition to the firm recognition, partner Jared Slade and senior associate Brad Smyer, both members of Alston & Bird’s Litigation & Trial Practice Group, were honored with DVAP’s “Pro Bono Coordinator of the Year” award and “Outstanding Virtual Clinic Volunteer Attorney” award, respectively.

DVAP is a joint program of the Dallas Bar Association and Legal Aid of Northwest Texas dedicated to enhancing pro bono legal services in Dallas by recruiting, training, and supporting volunteer attorneys. Their annual Pro Bono Awards Celebration honors judges, attorneys, court reporters, and legal staff who provide free legal services to indigent residents of Dallas County.
