A Recent Volunteering Experience

I, along with other attorneys from the firm, recently had the opportunity to participate in the Houston Volunteer Lawyers Program's Saturday Clinic held at The Ripley House in East Houston. HVLP provides pro bono legal services to low-income men and women of Harris County and to promote volunteerism among the legal community. We volunteered our time to help HVLP screen new cases and direct these clients to the appropriate clinic based on the type and facts of their cases. We volunteered for approximately several hours until every client was seen. The various cases ranged from divorces to guardianships of the incapacitated to help with handling debt and debt collection activities. I'd suggest that all lawyers looking for pro bono hours or a volunteer experience that is both rewarding and challenging to participate in this program. It was a rewarding experience to help those who truly need legal help but cannot afford it. But it was also challenging to screen and discuss cases we usually don't handle on an everyday basis. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or if you'd like more information visit the HVLP website at http://www.ehvlp.org/home/default.aspx.
