2020 Fifth Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Service Award Recipient
David Ryan has been a steady pro bono volunteer at Land of Lincoln for many years, taking on family law cases and filling some of the greatest needs in that area. He retired at the end of 2018 and was proactive about continuing his pro bono service. He’s been helping Land of Lincoln with uncontested matters in Vermilion County, allowing their attorneys to serve even more clients. David also takes plenary order of protection cases, contested or not. With such a high demand of these cases, and a smaller number of pro bono attorneys, Land of Lincoln is beyond grateful for his ongoing assistance. In 2019, David also volunteered at the Vermilion County expungement and sealing summit, helping clients clear their criminal records.
