North Star Lawyers of Hennepin County

The Hennepin County Bar Association is proud to recognize members who provide 50 hours or more of pro bono legal services per year as North Star Lawyers.


Lawyers who serve low-income Minnesotans without charge should be celebrated. By generously donating their time and talent, they change lives. They help people who otherwise could not afford counsel achieve justice. For hours volunteered in calendar year 2021, the MSBA gave special recognition to members who provide 50 hours or more of legal services as defined in Rule 6.1(a), (b)(1) and (b)(2) of the Rules of Professional Conduct. This year, the following 579 HCBA members were certified as North Star Lawyers for their work in 2021.

Thank You, 2021 HCBA North Star Lawyers!
