APB in the news: Pro bono cost awards improve access to justice
A few weeks ago, Canadian Lawyer magazine profiled Matthew Nied of Nied Law Litigation Counsel, and the fact that he secured a costs award for a successful appellant before the BC Court of Appeal. Matthew donated the cost award back to APB in appreciation of the disbursement coverage and help provided to him by APB staff, including Heather Wojcik-- APB's Director of Legal Services. He hopes that his example will inspire more lawyers to take on pro bono cases, and also to pay any pro bono costs forward to help the broader cause of access to justice. We hope so too!
