What has been one of your most rewarding moments while providing assistance to Legal Aid clients?
As an attorney, it’s easy to forget how difficult it can be for many to access legal services and the courts. But when providing assistance to Legal Aid clients I’m reminded that preparing and filing even one document on their behalf can open doors and provide opportunities that the client has been waiting for.
What would you say to an attorney who is thinking about volunteering with Legal Aid?
Sign up and see what it is about! Legal Aid does an amazing job organizing the clinics, which are often on a Saturday, and preparing the volunteers. I’ve only had great experiences volunteering with Legal Aid!
