Community Involvement — A Personal Commitment to Making Communities of the Arrowhead Region the Best They Can Be

A community is more than just a group of individuals looking out for themselves. A community is people working together to make life better for everyone. Duluth attorney Bill L. Thompson has made it a personal commitment to be involved in the communities of the Arrowhead region and lives up to that commitment by providing pro bono legal services through several organizations and participating in a variety of governance boards and community positions.

In 2006, Mr. Thompson was recognized for his hard work in providing legal services for indigent individuals and named Volunteer Lawyer of the Year. Mr. Thompson’s volunteer work was also instrumental in his former law firm receiving the honor of Volunteer Law Firm of the Year in 2007.

Giving Back in a Way Few Can

As a family law and criminal defense lawyer, Mr. Thompson realizes he has a special set of skills in high demand among indigent and low-income households. Since not everyone can volunteer to provide pro bono legal services, Mr. Thompson believes the responsibility of ensuring people receive the quality legal services they are entitled to by law falls to himself and his fellow attorneys.

“I take it extremely personally to provide pro bono services,” says Mr. Thompson.

Mr. Thompson also appreciates the opportunity to give back to the organizations that provided him with valuable internship and learning opportunities when pursuing his law degree over a decade ago.

Organizations and achievements Mr. Thompson has been involved with include:

  • Volunteer Attorney Program (Former Board Chair)
  • Minnesota Lawyer’s Trust Account (Past Board Member)
  • Sixth Judicial District Pro Bono Committee
  • Legal Assistance to the Disadvantaged Committee (Former Member)
  • Minnesota Pro Bono Council
  • Anishinabe Legal Services (Former Board Member)
  • Northwoods Children’s Services (Former Board Member)
  • Board of Education, Duluth Public Schools (Former Board Member)
  • 2006 Volunteer Lawyer of the Year
