Matt Cartwright Recognized for Pro Bono Efforts
Attorney Matt Cartwright of our firm was one of four attorneys who received awards for exceptional legal leadership during a gathering of the 700-member bar association of Luzerne County, the Wilkes-Barre Law & Library Association.
Cartwright, a lawyer with Munley, Munley & Cartwright, P.C., was recognized for his leadership of the Juvenile Pro Bono Defense Program, which was created to guarantee pro bono counsel for juveniles that had been adjudicated by former President Judge Mark Ciavarella in the event their cases were retired.
Also honored during the celebration were attorneys Kelly Ann Bray, Matthew Muckler and Frank T. McCabe II. Bray organized volunteer lawyers to draft wills for area first responders and other public service personnel through the Young Lawyers’ Division program “Wills for Heroes” held at Luzerne County Community College in 2009. Muckler and McCabe organized the 2010 Regional Mock Trial Competition at the Luzerne County Courthouse over several nights. Area schools competed by arguing cases before judges of the Court of Common Pleas and volunteer juries in a courtroom.
