Chris Pham Honored for Pro Bono Work


MINNEAPOLIS – Lindquist & Vennum has presented the 2012 Leonard E. Lindquist Award to Chris Pham, an associate in the firm’s real estate and construction litigation practice group, in recognition of his dedication to serving underprivileged youth in the community.

Presented annually since 1996, the Leonard E. Lindquist award is given to one Lindquist & Vennum lawyer in recognition of his or her outstanding commitment to pro bono service.

Pham’s notable pro bono commitments include working with homeless youth at the YouthLink clinic, providing legal guidance at the housing court clinic for those facing eviction, assisting individuals with letters to creditors, and representing youth in foster care at the Children’s Law Center.

“I am honored to be recognized for my contributions, as I take my pro bono work very seriously and am passionate about helping those in need,” stated Pham. “I hope I can serve as an inspiration for others to engage in more pro bono work, as there is such a great need in our local communities.”

Lindquist & Vennum was recently named one of only 10 firms and corporate legal departments to National Law Journal’s 2013 Pro Bono Hotlist, which recognizes exemplary commitments to access of justice. For more than 15 years, Lindquist & Vennum has maintained 100 percent participation from its attorneys in the firm’s pro bono program.

Pham graduated from the William Mitchell College of Law and received his bachelor's degree from the University of Minnesota.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
