Menges receives 2015 Pro Bono Award, January 12, 2016 Chris Menges (now Justice Menges) received a 2015 PBA Pro Bono Award through a joint nomination from the York County Law Association and MidPenn Legal Services, reflecting the lawyers` partnership with private practice, local bar associations and local legal aid programs that remains the core model for pro bono services. Menges` nominators had this to say about him: “Chris has handled pro bono referrals for years and has been willing to accept custody cases at all stages and participates in divorce and custody clinics. In addition, he encourages lawyers in his firm to accept pro bono recommendations, which makes the firm 100% involved. His willingness to help allowed clients to be represented, even if they would otherwise have had to represent themselves. Pictured is PBA President William H.

A grandmother with limited income was informed that she had received an overpayment of $1,100 in her Social Security benefits and was ordered to pay it back. At that time, the woman was struggling to pay for a new roof and stove for the old house where she cared for her granddaughter. One of our legal aid membership programs, North Penn Legal Services, has appealed on his behalf.
