The firm was recognized for its commitment to pro bono legal representation along with other attorneys, law firms, and organizations on Wednesday, Jan. 24 during the 2018 Pro Bono Awards luncheon at the Fort Worth City Club.

“We are honored to have been recognized by Tarrant County Volunteer Services,” said Benson Varghese, founder and managing partner of the firm. “Each year, our attorneys devote 10 to 20 percent of their time assisting indigent Tarrant County residents who can’t afford an attorney.
