Hiscock & Barclay Associate Matt Kerwin Earns Bar Association Award for Pro Bono Work

Syracuse, New York - May 3, 2013 - The Onondaga County Bar Association recognized Matthew T. Kerwin, associate at Hiscock & Barclay LLP, with the Pro Bono Service Award as part of its Law Day ceremonies Thursday.

Kerwin was honored "for his extraordinary volunteer commitment to the Say Yes to Education Legal Clinic, the landlord tenant court project, and his compassionate counsel to the clients he has supported through the pro se divorce clinic," the Bar Association said in announcing the award.

"Matt's commitment to our community is a credit to his profession and our firm," said John Langan, Managing Partner at Hiscock & Barclay. "We could not be more proud."

Kerwin's practice areas include Environmental and Land Use. In his practice, he has represented many different individuals and businesses in an array of land use and development matters, with a focus on representing wireless telecommunications providers and tower companies in the acquisition of land use and zoning approvals throughout New York State.

Kerwin is active in the community beyond his pro bono work. He serves as president of the commission of a local Catholic school and coaches one of the school's youth basketball teams.

Bar Associations around the country mark Law Day at the beginning of May each year. In Onondaga County, this year's effort was organized by Anne Burak Dotzler, associate at Hiscock & Barclay.

Hiscock & Barclay, LLP, listed as a "Top 250 Firm" by The National Law Journal, is a full-service, 200-attorney law firm, with offices throughout the major cities of New York State, as well as in Boston, Washington, D.C. and Toronto, providing comprehensive legal and business counsel to a diverse client base in 30 practice areas.
