Why do you volunteer with VLB?
"Every lawyer has an ethical duty to help represent people who cannot afford legal services. VLB does a great job of meeting clients' needs, and I’m happy to be able to help.”
What is your favorite pro bono case you've ever worked on?
"In addition to volunteering with VLB for about 20 years, I have been appointed to represent prisoners who had been abused by guards. And I've represented men on death row. Those cases take years. I had one case that actually took 20 years.
"In contrast, when a lawyer volunteers with VLB, you can help someone who really needs legal help and often you can help them immediately. You realize, this person’s legal rights would not have been protected but for the fact that you volunteered.”
