Bodman Receives 2017 Urban League of Detroit Corporate Community Service Award

By: Bodman PLC

12/19/17

Bodman PLC is pleased to announce that the Urban League of Detroit & Southeastern Michigan, a non-profit organization whose mission is to enable African Americans and other persons of color in the Metro Detroit and Southeastern Michigan region to achieve their fullest potential, has named Bodman the recipient of its 2017 Corporate Community Service Award.

Bodman attorney Carl F. Stafford accepted the award at the Urban League’s 52nd Annual Guild Gala held at the Detroit Marriott-Renaissance Center on Saturday, December 2.

The Corporate Community Service Award recognizes organizations that are heavily involved in service efforts that benefit the local community. Stafford and Bodman have served as general counsel to the Urban League of Detroit & Southeastern Michigan for more than five years. In that capacity, Stafford has attended all of the organization’s board meetings, reviewed contracts and leases, and resolved various business disputes, all on a pro bono basis.

The Corporate Community Service Award is the fifth significant honor so far in 2017 for Bodman’s multi-award winning pro bono program. The firm’s pro bono efforts are managed by a full-time pro bono counsel, Kimberly A. Paulson, under the guidance of a standing Pro Bono Committee chaired by firm members Susan M. Kornfield and Christopher J. Dine. Paulson is one of only three dedicated pro bono counsel to be employed by large Michigan law firms.
