On June 15th, 2018, Yonke Law attorney Charles Regan received a Pro Bono Certificate of Appreciation by the Kansas Bar Association for his ongoing charitable contributions in serving the less fortunate with free legal services. Each year, the KBA presents a number of awards during their annual meeting to worthy nominees from throughout the state of Kansas. Charlie was one of only six recipients to receive this special certificate of recognition this year.
To be eligible, recipients must meet the following criteria:
- Lawyers who are not employed full time by an organization that has as its primary purpose the provision of free legal services to the poor;
- Lawyers who, with no expectation of receiving a fee, have provided direct delivery of legal services in civil or criminal matters to a client or client group that does not have the resources to employ compensated counsel;
- Lawyers who have made a voluntary contribution of a significant portion of time to providing legal services to the poor without charge; and/or
- Lawyers whose voluntary contributions have resulted in increased access to legal services on the part of low- and moderate-income persons.
At Yonke Law, we strive to impact where we live and work in positive and meaningful ways. We do this in part by donating our time and our resources to help others in need. Charlie Regan exemplifies what it means to give charitably out of the goodness of one’s heart. Those of us that work with Charlie every day are proud to see him get recognized for his selfless actions. Way to go, Charlie!
