David Fawcett was dedicated to our lawyers’ efforts to provide free and meaningful legal services to indigent civil litigants including the working poor. Further, in honor of Mr. Fawcett’s many charitable efforts, Dickie McCamey acknowledges the many members of our staff that faithfully and generously contribute to supporting those in need.
“Despite the obvious obstacles this year, many of our lawyers continue to sacrifice their personal time by participating in our pro bono programs,” said shareholder William D. Clifford. “On behalf of the committee, I extend our thanks to them. We are very proud of their efforts. These efforts continue to add to the hard-earned reputation that we, the lawyers of Dickie, McCamey & Chilcote, enjoy.”
Ms. Carbonara volunteered with the Best Interests Attorney Program and the Sharpsburg Neighborhood Table Clinic, handled pro bono PFAs, organized a Halloween costume drive for English as a Second Language students at Baldwin-Whitehall, and organized a Beverly’s Birthdays volunteer day.
“I have had the honor to collaborate with several attorneys in our firm in the representation of four children in three best interest cases, and I truly believe that we made a real, positive impact in all of those families’ lives,” said Ms. Carbonara. “I feel very privileged to work for a firm that encourages its attorneys to give back to their community and provides us with the opportunity to use our skills to help others.”
