Law at the Landing
I am pleased to announce that our first ever Law at the Landing legal clinic was a rousing success. Our nine volunteer attorneys served 22 people who were very much in need of legal assistance.
People began arriving at 11:20 a.m. for the noon start time and the last person helped left at 3:15. Many people commented on what a great and needed program this was for the county and we were all thanked profusely.
Those attorneys who volunteered their time and made this event successful were:
A special thank you goes to Shauna Rogers at Pro Bono Lawyers. Shauna made sure all the materials (pens, paper, water) and legal information binders were available. She came early to help set up tables and chairs. She ‘manned’ the registration desk, provided brochures and business cards and helped keep the masses (and the attorneys) organized. Her work prior to the clinic needs to be recognized as well. She worked long hours preparing the helpful binders, talking to people on the phone about the event and making sure it was well advertised in local news outlets. She was great!
