Bill Hefner Recognized as 2014 MSBA North Star Lawyer

ELG partner  Bill Hefner has been named a 2014 “North Star Lawyer” by the Minnesota State Bar Association.  Each year, the MSBA recognizes members who have provided 50 hours or more of pro bono legal services.  Bill provided over 80 hours of free legal services last year to five different juvenile clients as a volunteer attorney for the Children’s Law Center of Minnesota.  Staff and volunteer attorneys for the Children’s Law Center provide legal representation to children who are either wards of the state – “legal orphans” – or have been removed from their homes because they are in need of protection. CLC also represents foster children who request help. Bill has been a volunteer CLC attorney since 2004.

A complete list of the 2014 North Star Lawyers was published in the June 4, 2015 issue of the Minneapolis Star Tribune and will appear in the June 2015 issue of the MSBA’s Bench and Bar magazine.
