Thank you volunteers!
We’d like to thank our great volunteers that have closed extended service cases:
Latonia Williams (Five Points Law) helped a client get a divorce from her abusive spouse. The client had sustained injuries that left her in the hospital during the relationship. The client referred to Latonia as a “blessing for helping people.”
Preston Neel (Bradley) assisted a client with a garnishment action that ran contrary to the parties’ prior agreement. Preston successfully negotiated a new payment plan as well as kept the client from having to pay the creditor’s attorney fees and court costs.
Ted Stuckenschneider  helped a client save their home by assisting with a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. The client was recently laid off from her job and had been struggling financially. The client said, “Ted helped me in my time of need and for that I am extremely grateful.”
Whitney Seals (Cochrun & Seals) helped a client get a garnishment dismissed as well as get the client’s money that had been wrongfully taken. The client had been living in an apartment complex and the landlord had gotten the garnishment against the client for unknown fees. The client said that Whitney “took me up under his wing and really helped me out. He was just awesome.”
Lee Gilmer  (White Arnold Dowd) helped a homeless client get his license after the client had lost all of his personal identification after being hospitalized three times in two different counties. Lee took the client to the Health Department so that the client could get his birth certificate and then his license in the same day.
