Volunteer of the Month – April 2017
Firm: Assistant District Attorney for Dallas County
Hilary Blake moved to Dallas in 2012 and immediately got involved with DVAP. Currently, as an Assistant District Attorney for Dallas County during the business day, Hilary volunteers her time at night and on weekends with DVAP and loves the plethora of pro bono opportunities. In the past, Hilary has assisted with drafting wills for seniors as well as speaking to various groups in the community as needed. Hilary has truly enjoyed weekend work with the Habitat for Humanity New Homeowners Program through her estate planning presentations and discussion of the legal documentation that goes along with property ownership. Every month, Hilary teaches an evening juvenile justice class through DVAP’s Children’s Justice Project, which is court-ordered for first-time juvenile offenders and their parents or guardians. Hilary also helps these students secure internships, future education, and pursue success years after her presentation is complete. Thank you for all you do, Hilary!
