Charles Greenhalgh receives award for Outstanding Commitment to Legal Services for the Poor

BERLIN- Charles Greenhalgh, a partner at Cooper Cargill Chant Attorneys at Law, received the prestigious L. Jonathan Ross Award for Outstanding Commitment to Legal Services for the Poor from the New Hampshire Bar Association. He received the award at the organization's mid-winter meeting on March 7, held at the Radisson Hotel/Center of New Hampshire in Manchester.

The annual award was created as a tribute to L. Jonathan Ross, president of the New Hampshire Bar Association from 1985 to 1986, who has been at the forefront of efforts to preserve free legal services for the poor. The award pays homage to Ross' role in organizing state bar associations to lobby Congress to preserve federal funding for civil legal services for the poor when the program was targeted for extinction by Reagan Administration appointees.

When reached at his firm's offices in North Conway, Greenhalgh commented, "I'm so proud to be selected for this award, and proud to be among the group who've received this award in the past. They are some of the most prominent attorneys in the state."

Greenhalgh has been a committed participant in the association's Pro Bono Referral Program and its Domestic Violence Emergency (DOVE) Project for 24 years. DOVE, which provides victims of domestic violence with emergency legal services, works in partnership with domestic violence service agencies throughout New Hampshire and relies on the donated services of specially trained attorneys. Early in his career, when he was practicing in Nashua, Greenhalgh began accepting DOVE referrals from Bridges crisis center. When he moved north to join Cooper Cargill Chant, Greenhalgh connected with the crisis center in Berlin. Since then, he has helped victims in Coos and Carroll Counties. He also makes it his practice to take on contested family law cases for Pro Bono's North Country clients where legal resources are scarce and need is high.

Greenhalgh says of his involvement, "The Pro Bono Referral Program and DOVE are such worthy causes. I find it rewarding to have them as part of my practice, and to be able to use the resources of Cooper Cargill Chant to help in these cases. It's gratifying to be able to help someone through such a tough situation."

Greenhalgh hasn't limited his involvement to client services. Since 1996 he has instructed or contributed materials for many DOVE attorney training seminars, sharing his passion to create a more level playing field for victims seeking protection from domestic violence. Greenhalgh extends his involvement as a trainer by mentoring both attorneys and crisis center advocates. He also serves as faculty for Pro Bono's annual Divorce Camp designed to recruit and equip attorneys to handle family law cases as a means to expand volunteer resources for this critical area of client need.

Greenhalgh received the Bar Association's Distinguished Service to the Public award in 2011 and has served on the Pro Bono Board since 2008. As a member of that board, he assists the program in setting policy and goals to assure quality volunteer and client services.

Greenhalgh says his involvement is also a reflection of his firm's culture. "Everybody at Cooper Cargill Chant is involved with the New Hampshire Bar Association governance at some point," Greenhalgh continues. "As a the largest firm in northern New Hampshire, we've made a commitment to be involved in both the association and in pro bono work. I want to thank my partners, associates and staff at Cooper Cargill Chant for their support of my pro bono work; I couldn't do it with out their strong commitment."
