Bodman Named 2017 ProsperUS Service Provider of the Year

By: Bodman PLC

11/28/17

Bodman PLC is pleased to announce that ProsperUS Detroit, a non-profit organization that works to revitalize communities by concentrating micro-enterprise development in low-income immigrant and minority neighborhoods, has named the firm its “Service Provider of the Year” for 2017.

Bodman has partnered with ProsperUS since 2014 by providing free legal services to its qualifying entrepreneur clients and their small businesses that would otherwise not be able to afford legal assistance.  

Bodman received the award on November 15 at the ProsperUS Detroit Fall Convening, an event which brings together ProsperUS staff, clients, community partners, and service providers who assist their clients. Bodman is the first recipient of the Service Provider of the Year award.

Bodman’s multi-award winning pro bono program is 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 joined Bodman 2012 and is one of only three dedicated pro bono counsel to be employed by large Michigan law firms.
