“We know that there are never going to be enough lawyers, and we do not have enough money to serve everyone with a legal issue. However, I am working hard to be one of the agents of rapid, effective, and high impact change. I have gained many personal benefits from doing pro bono work, but most importantly, doing this work reminds me why I chose to be a lawyer in the first place. The personal reward gained from donating my time and money far outweighs any amount I could ever give.”
