Twarog to Receive 2018 Pro Bono Award
Frank Twarog, a partner with MURDOCH HUGHES & TWAROG Attorneys at Law, P.C., will receive the 2018 Pro Bono Service Award at the VBA’s Mid-Year meeting on March 23, 2018.
Frank was nominated by Kim Jordan, a legal advocate at Steps to End Domestic Violence, for his volunteer work with survivors of domestic violence. Ms. Jordan wrote “Frank’s legal representation has made a world of difference in helping domestic violence survivors feel safe, heard, and on their way to an independent, sustainable life for them and their children.”
Throughout his career, Frank has dedicated a substantial portion of his practice to providing pro bono and volunteer services for indigent clients in the community. As a Guardian ad Litem, an attorney for children, and an advocate for the homeless, Frank regularly appears on behalf of those who often feel that they do not have a voice in the legal system.
Over the past two decades, Frank has volunteered hundreds of hours to the Town of Hinesburg, serving as Town Moderator, Town Agent, Peck Estate Trustee, Chair of the Recreation Commission, and founder and past-Chair of the Trails Committee. He regularly volunteers at the Hinesburg Community School, serving as a member of PIE (Partnership in Education) and as a coach to a variety of educational and sports teams.
