Pro Bono work means you’re helping someone who needs help and does not have the means to hire a private attorney. But it’s also a chance to make a positive impact in the community where we live.

It is very satisfactory to me. It helps me help people because I enjoy helping people. And when I help a person and at the end of a case they give me a hug or they smile and say thank you very much for helping me, hopefully I am able to help them in their life and get them away from a situation.

I find the work to be incredibly fulfilling, especially the work I’m doing. There are people who are trying to get a second chance in life and they’re very appreciative in anyone who takes an interest in them and the results have been very satisfying.
Whatever you’re willing to do or can do, even if it’s to take a phone call or answer questions. It’s a very rewarding job when you do it and you help these people who need the help.
