How long have you been doing pro bono work?
I have been doing pro bono work for 4 years since graduation from law school.
Why do you do pro bono work/What benefits do you get from volunteering with TRLA?
It exposes me to more contested litigation in the courtroom thereby giving me more trial experience.
What message would you give to private attorneys considering doing pro bono work?
It is good training for young lawyers needing experience in trial.
Any words for TRLA staff or your fellow pro bono volunteers during Celebrate Pro Bono Week?
The staff was very friendly and helpful and even drafted some of the documents needed.
