Feature Story: The Power of Pro Bono
Every year Texas RioGrande Legal Aid (TRLA) works with hundreds of private attorneys who selflessly volunteer their time to provide their services at no cost to low-income clients. In a tough economy, TRLA’s services have been in high demand and these attorneys are a key resource to meeting that demand.
In the spirit of recognizing their commitment and saying “thank you” TRLA works with partner domestic violence shelters to select ten pro bono attorneys to honor at our annual Legal Access to Rural Shelters Conference in San Antonio.
This year’s winners of the Private Attorney Involvement Awards are symbols of the commitment that Texas lawyers have to low-income clients in need.
