Question and Answer

I am an attorney who has worked 25 hours during the past year for various programs listed under category #88. I have worked 15 hours for one of the programs and 10 hours for another. Am I eligible to claim an exemption from pro bono?

Yes. The 25-hour requirement is not tied directly to service for one program. If the attorney volunteers 25 hours for any one program or for a combination of programs listed under category #88, then the attorney is eligible to claim an exemption.
