Why Volunteer: A Shared Experience

“I volunteer because of the opportunity to use my legal skills to help those who are unable to obtain legal representation otherwise. Clients are very grateful for the help of volunteers because otherwise the legal system can seem quite daunting and complex to them. Volunteering has been a two-way street for me — not only do I help clients with their legal woes, but being a newly admitted attorney I get to take on interesting cases, receive training and mentorship from senior lawyers, interact with and represent clients, and be challenged everyday in every way.”
