Charleston, W.Va. — Spilman Thomas & Battle (Spilman) recently received the 2022 Distinguished Pro Bono Award from Legal Aid of West Virginia.

The Distinguished Pro Bono Award recognizes a lawyer or law firm whose pro bono efforts in a given year have gone “above and beyond” the call of duty and are deserving of special recognition. In 2021, Spilman attorneys used their professional talents to donate more than 70 hours of pro bono assistance to Legal Aid of West Virginia clients, with significant time spent helping families adopt children.   

"We have a longstanding commitment to pro bono work. It has been part of our firm's DNA since its founding in 1864," said Michael J. Basile, Spilman's Managing Member. "We encourage all on the Spilman team to be actively engaged in their communities – working to give back in every way possible."

Spilman also was recognized for its pro bono efforts in 2016.
