Firm gives Walker Jack Middleton Award.

Jeremy Walker, an attorney with the law firm of McLane, Graf, Raulerson & Middleton, has been presented with the firm's second annual Jack B. Middleton Pro Bono Legal Services Award for his commitment to serving New Hampshire's poor and underprivileged citizens.

"Providing legal services to the poor has been a hallmark of McLane's culture," said Steven Camerino, an energy and public utilities law attorney who serves as chair of the firm's management committee. "We have always had great role models at the firm, and wanted to find a way to emphasize our commitment to pro bono service."

Camerino said the firm created the award "to encourage current and future McLane attorneys to continue to advance the firm's efforts to provide service to the public regardless of a client's financial means."

Walker, Camerino said, "recently spent 85 hours this year alone representing a client in a pro bono custody case that presented many difficult issues, issues that he handled with grace and skill," said Camerino.

Jack Middleton, for whom the award is named, is a senior partner in the firm and was the first lawyer in private practice to be honored by the New Hampshire Bar Foundation with the Frank Rowe Kenison award for his work and contributions to the betterment of New Hampshire's citizens.

Walker, who focuses his practice in business litigation and intellectual property, was selected unanimously by the selection committee, in particular for having consistently met the firm's pro bono service goal since his admission to the bar in 1996.

In addition to working directly for pro bono clients, Walker also serves on the New Hampshire Bar Association's Delivery of Legal Services Committee, helping to oversee the operation of the pro bono referral system in New Hampshire.
