New Faces at VLB!
VLB would like to introduce our summer clerks that you will see at Help Desks and at other events this summer. Kathryn Grafton and Wilson Landers are both rising 2Ls at Cumberland School of Law. They will spend the first half of the summer helping our great attorney volunteers make an impact in the community. 
 
Please say hello when you see them at a Help Desk. Attorney volunteers are also encouraged to bring their own summer clerks to a Help Desk. Please click here to volunteer.

Attorney Helps Domestic Violence Victim
Victoria Charles helped a victim of domestic violence with her divorce. The client endured years of mental and physical abuse by her spouse. The spouse is currently incarcerated for assault. Thanks to Victoria, the client can now move on with her life. “Mrs. Charles was the best thing that’s been sent into my life in a long, long time” said the client.
 
If you are interested in helping a victim of domestic violence, please contact Heather Bussey.
