California’s chief justice, Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye, will deliver the keynote address at Legal Aid of Napa Valley's Third Annual Pro Bono recognition event on Feb. 13.

Recognition will be given to attorneys who have donated their time, providing critical legal services to the county's at risk population, the agency said.  Non-attorney volunteers will also be recognized.

Legal Aid of Napa Valley is a non-profit agency that provides legal assistance to seniors, immigrants and low-income individuals — those who are least likely to have private attorneys.

Legal Aid will be recognizing over 50 attorneys, 20 law students and 14 volunteers who donated over 2,600 hours of their time.

Judge Diane Price will be presenting the Justice H. Wes Walker Pro Bono Award to the law firm of Latham & Watkins, LLP, which provided over 1,000 hours of pro bono services in 2012.

The reception and awards ceremony will take place at the home of Bob and Anne Arns, starting at 4 p.m..
