Akron attorney and OLAF board member William Dowling has been named a recipient of the 2018 John and Ginny Elam Pro Bono Award.

The award recognizes a lawyer’s pro bono legal work in Ohio to provide access to justice for all. Bill has demonstrated exceptional commitment to pro bono legal services throughout his career and most recently through creating and sustaining the VALID program, a free monthly clinic that helps low-income Akron-area residents navigate the driver’s license reinstatement process.
