The honor society recognizes attorneys who donated 50 or more hours of legal services during 2016.

Earlier this year, Steven was inducted into the Herb Falk Society, an honorary run by the Greensboro Bar Association for attorneys who devoted more than 75 hours of pro bono work in a calendar year.
Pro bono work plays an important role in the firm’s culture, and Ellis & Winters encourages its attorneys to find pro bono clients and matters meaningful to them. The firm, moreover, treats its pro bono clients with the same dignity, respect, and effort as any other client. In 2016 alone, our lawyers, paralegals, and staff devoted over 1,400 hours to pro bono work.
