Bradley is pleased to announce that Austin Hagood, an attorney in the firm’s Huntsville office, has been named a “Top Pro Bono Volunteer” for 2019 by the Madison County Volunteer Lawyers Program (MCVLP).
“We congratulate Austin and commend his pro bono work through the Madison County Volunteer Lawyers Program,” said Tiffany M. Graves, Bradley’s pro bono counsel. “Austin and many other Bradley attorneys do incredible work each year to help bridge the access-to-justice gap in serving those in need in our communities.”
Mr. Hagood and other “Top Pro Bono Volunteer” honorees were formally recognized and celebrated at a luncheon on Oct. 28. The mission of the MCVLP is to provide equal access to justice through the delivery of pro bono legal services to low income citizens in Madison County and to promote volunteerism among attorneys in the county. According to the organization, MCVLP volunteers donated more than 2,300 hours of pro bono service in the last year.
A member of Bradley’s Litigation Practice Group, Mr. Hagood represents clients in general litigation matters. He is a recent graduate (magna cum laude) of the University of Alabama School of Law.
Through Bradley’s pro bono programs covering all of the firm’s offices, Bradley attorneys devote a significant amount of time to pro bono work and community service each year. In 2018, the firm’s attorneys and staff performed more than 19,800 hours of pro bono service valued at more than $7 million. The firm also donated more than $900,000 to nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations last year.
