A city attorney was honored for his pro-bono work representing the elderly, mentally handicapped and families in need in probate court cases.
Stephen Keogh, a partner in the law firm Keogh, Burkhart & Vetter, took home the first "Glenn R. Knierim Pro Bono Award" at the Probate Assembly's annual meeting in Hartford.
"It's really quite an honor," he said. "Every probate court judge can name at least 12 lawyers who can take home this award."
Probate Assembly President-Judge Daniel Caruso said the assembly created the award to honor the probate lawyers who go above and beyond their duties to accommodate their clients. The award is named after the longest-serving probate court administrator.
