Woodburn and Wedge, Nevada-based independent law firm, has been named the 2011 Champion of Justice Law Firm Honoree by Nevada Legal Services (NLS) for contributing to NLS’ efforts to promote pro bono legal aid to the Nevada community. Woodburn and Wedge will receive the honor during the Champions of Justice luncheon on Thursday, Oct. 20 at Peppermill.

Woodburn and Wedge attorneys have donated their legal services over the last year to numerous individuals in the Reno-Sparks area in need of free legal services referred to them by NLS.
