Mark Bina Elected to Chicago Volunteer Legal Services Board of Directors05/28/15
CHICAGO, Ill. — The national law firm of Quarles & Brady LLP today announced that Mark W. Bina, a partner in the firm's Litigation & Dispute Resolution and Health Law Practice Groups, has been elected to the board of directors of Chicago Volunteer Legal Services (CVLS).
CVLS is the oldest civil pro bono organization in Chicago, comprised of more than 3,000 attorneys who donate free legal services to thousands of low-income residents. Bina's election to the board continues the firm's association with the more than 50-year-old organization. CVLS operates 22 legal clinics across the Chicago area, hosted evenings and weekends at community organizations and churches.
Bina succeeds Quarles & Brady partner Christopher N. Skey on the board of directors. Firm associate Adam J. Falkof was recently elected to the CVLS Junior Board. All three practice out of the firm's Chicago office.
"Mark is a distinguished pro bono attorney in his own right, and will be a great addition to the CVLS board of directors," said Skey. "Quarles & Brady is extremely proud of its longtime relationship with this organization."
Bina's practice encompasses a variety of matters affecting businesses in state and federal trial and appellate courts across the country. In 2013, he received an award for excellence in pro bono service from the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois and the Chicago chapter of the Federal Bar Association.
