Murray & Murray Pro Bono Award New

It is because of my love for my community that I seek out ways to help everyone I can, no matter what their financial situation is.

The Louisiana State Bar Association awarded Dwayne Murray of Murray & Murray, LLC with the LSBA's 2015 Friend of Pro Bono Award. The ceremony was held at the Louisiana Supreme Court in New Orleans.

The LSBA's Friend of Pro Bono award honors attorneys, non-attorneys, law firms, or organizations who have enhanced and contributed to the promotion of pro bono legal services for low-income individuals or households during the prior year. Murray was nominated by Robin Kay, not only because of his pro bono legal services as one of the top bankruptcy lawyers in Baton Rouge, but also because of his dedication to educating young people about finances.

"I am deeply and truly honored to be presented with such a prestigious award from the Louisiana State Bar Association," said Dwayne Murray. "It is because of my love for my community that I seek out ways to help everyone I can, no matter what their financial situation is."

Working as a bankruptcy trustee for 22 years, Murray has witnessed how financial mistakes like overspending and credit card abuse during a person's youth can cause them financial difficulties in the future. To combat the growing trend of young people falling into financial crisis, Murray established programs to promote financial literacy throughout the nation's youth. His programs include Credit Abuse Resistance Education (CARE) and the Greek-Life focused Greeks Learning to Avoid Debt (GLAD). He also mentors young men and women on an individual basis and participates in fundraisers for charitable institutions.
