David Walsh — Volunteer Lawyers Project, Corpus Christi, Texas
I perform pro bono work because I strongly believe attorneys need to give back to the community, and I believe performing pro bono work helps the clients better understand and appreciate the legal profession. The pro bono clients are very appreciative and grateful clients. They are a joy to help. I would encourage all attorneys to donate their time and talents to perform pro bono work. The work is rewarding, and I benefit from it as much or more than the clients.
