Butler Snow LLP has been recognized by the American Bar Association (ABA) for participating in the 2022 ABA Free Legal Answers Pro Bono Leaders.

Operating in 41 jurisdictions, nearly 12,000 attorneys nationally have registered to volunteer on ABA Free Legal Answers. Of those, 140 attorneys in 2022 — handled at least 50 civil legal questions each and are recognized as 2022 ABA Free Legal Answers Pro Bono Leaders.
