Pro Bono Honor Roll

Recognition of Pro Bono Volunteers in the United States Bankruptcy Court, District of Arizona

     In honor of National Pro Bono Celebration week, the United States Bankruptcy Court, District of Arizona, recognizes the exceptional commitment and efforts of bankruptcy attorneys in our district who assist self-represented parties. The District of Arizona has the second highest self-represented filing rate in the nation. Pro bono volunteers help those debtors and creditors navigate through the complicated bankruptcy system. These attorneys greatly benefit the Court and all of its litigants.

     The pro bono services recognized include volunteer commitment to one or more of the following: Bankruptcy Court Pro Bono Panel (consultation and representation in adversaries and contested matters); Bankruptcy Court Self Help Center, Friends of the Court Reaffirmation programs; Southern Arizona Legal Aid and Community Legal Services Volunteer Lawyer Program representation in individual Chapter 7 cases. The Court thanks each of the following Honor Roll of Pro Bono volunteers for their current and continued support in assisting self-represented parties in our district.1

     This year the Bankruptcy Section of the State Bar in coordination with the Bankruptcy Court Self Help Center started a new pro bono program, the Chapter 13 Expert Panel, to assist Chapter 13 debtors who have lost their attorney, due to disbarment or other circumstances. These experienced Chapter 13 attorneys provide a one hour free consultation to debtors to analyze their case and to explain their present and future options.

Randolph J. Haines, Chief Bankruptcy Judge


1The Honor Roll lists will be updated annually. If you wish to volunteer for a pro bono program, please contact Tami Johnson, Pro Se Law Clerk, at tami_johnson@azb.uscourts.gov.
