- How did you first get involved in pro bono?
I volunteered for the legal help line. I realized I could do more with helping others who couldn’t afford quality legal services. It has been a goal of mine to provide those services.
- Describe your most compelling pro bono case.
A disabled client seeking a divorce was abandoned by her spouse and couldn’t afford legal services. I was able to assist her.

Giving back to those in need and never expecting anything in return is the best feeling. I enjoy helping those who can’t afford legal services.
- What impact has pro bono service had on your career?
I would say networking has been a great benefit for me.
- What is the most unexpected benefit you have received from doing pro bono?
It brings me happiness to see clients’ joy when I have been able to provide great legal services. It’s a rewarding Disney storybook feeling for me.
