Volunteer of the Month – July 2017
Firm: Hunton & Williams LLP
Nicole Collins is an Associate at Hunton & Williams. She has handled several pro bono cases over the years, mostly in the family law context – including drafting wills for seniors; no property, no kids divorces; with kids divorces; and name changes. She has found handling these matters to be very rewarding. She has also interviewed applicants about their legal issues at the DVAP Wills Clinic and Veterans Clinic. Justice Sonia Sotomayor once said “We educated, privileged lawyers have a professional and moral duty to represent the underrepresented in our society, to ensure that justice exists for all, both legal and economic justice.” Nicole heartily agrees – she feels compelled to represent low-income people on a pro bono basis, and finds it an honor to be able to do so. Thank you for all you do, Nicole!
