2013 Pro Bono Publico Award Recipient: Patricia Lee

Each year, the ABA Standing Committee on Pro Bono and Public Service Pro Bono Publico Awards honor individuals or organizations in the legal community that enhance the human dignity of others by improving or delivering volunteer legal services to the poor or disadvantaged. 2013 recipients were honored at a luncheon during the ABA Annual Meeting in San Francisco. This is the third of a five-part series recognizing this year’s award winners.


Patricia Lee, a Partner at Hutchison & Steffen in Las Vegas, is remarkably dedicated to pro bono efforts, both on a personal level and as a leader at her firm. In 2012, she performed more than 250 hours of pro bono service and led a pro bono initiative Hutchison & Steffen, leading it to donate more than 900 hours. Lee is a member of the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada’s Pro Bono Advisory Council, which works to encourage lawyers to take on pro bono cases, as well as a volunteer for the Child Advocacy Program in Nevada, where she represents abused and neglected children.
