On November 16th, David Trevaskis, Pro Bono Coordinator of the Pennsylvania Bar Association, awarded George Glen with the 2022 Pro Bono Award in recognition of his service to our community. Mr. Glen was nominated by FCBA’s pro bono committee, Franklin County Legal Services, MidPenn Legal Services, and the Law Offices of Women in Need.
Mr. Glen’s nomination states: “Attorney George Glen has always been extremely helpful to the Franklin County Bar Association Pro Bono program. He has accepted 20 cases since 2016 which have helped low-income individuals have access to critical legal aid. Whenever there was a need sent out by legal services, attorney Glen was quick to respond and to accept matters for individuals in need of wills, power of attorney documents, and living wills. This meant a great deal to the clients in need of these services for which they could not afford to hire an attorney. It helped to set their minds at ease that their end-of-life documents were in order. It helped individuals appoint a capable power of attorney so they could handle important details in their lives and to direct their health care. It helped our elderly residents feel confident that they had taken care of their important legal paperwork. Attorney Glen has gone above and beyond to serve those in need of legal services in the community through the contribution of his expertise and time on a pro bono basis. We cannot be more grateful. It was always such a wonderful gift when eligible individuals were referred to Attorney Glen as we knew that they would be well taken care of and that it met important goals in their lives.”
The award was given at our annual pro bono luncheon. FCBA members who participate in our pro bono program are invited each year. This year’s luncheon was the first in-person celebration since 2019 and was held at the Barrel House, in Chambersburg.
Tony Cosentino, Franklin County Bar Association president, said “Attorney Glen is most deserving of our annual Pro Bono Award for Pro Bono Service. For many years, George has been an outstanding attorney for all of his clients, both private clients and clients he has volunteered to assist through pro bono service. Year in and year out, George selflessly and graciously gives back to his community, volunteering his wealth of expertise and vast knowledge in the practice areas of estate planning and probate matters to help those most in need. George has been and remains a wonderful example of “service above self” that our organization’s members can always look to for inspiration”.
Thank you, Mr. Glen!
