Hi and welcome
What your husband did is wrong. Google the NORTH CAROLINA BAR ASSOCIATION It says:
In 2010, the State Bar of North Carolina adopted Rule 6.1, Voluntary Pro Bono Publico Service, as part of the N.C. Rules of Professional Conduct. Rule 6.1 states in part that: Every lawyer has a professional responsibility to provide legal services to those unable to pay. A lawyer should aspire to render at least (50) hours of pro bono publico legal services per year. Lawyers who have met or exceeded the expectation of providing 50 or more hours of pro bono service each calendar year are invited to become members of the North Carolina Bar Association's Pro Bono Honor Roll. Members of the Honor Roll are recognized throughout the year, and serve as model attorneys in giving back to their communities. To learn more, or be included as a member of the Honor Roll for 2012, please contact Mary Horowitz, Director of Public Service & Pro Bono Activities atXXX@XXXXXX.XXX. Congratulations to the following inaugural members of the North Carolina Bar Association Pro Bono Honor Roll!
