Volunteering with CABA Pro Bono is an opportunity for me to help those in need and give back to our community. At the end of the day, when you see the people you help with the challenges and difficulties in their daily lives, but do not give up, it opens your eyes to the realities our current society confronts and has made me proud to be part of this initiative.

My participation in the CABA Pro-Bono Guardian At Litem program was a very valuable opportunity. It was an insightful journey that gave my law career meaning and a purpose. My focus was to help the children and be a voice for them. I received all the support I needed from CABA and I felt my efforts and hard work were appreciated by the court and the organization.

I chose to give my time and effort to CABA Pro Bono because I believe in their work. They are a pillar of the community, giving legal aid to people in need regardless of nationality or creed.

The work CABA Pro Bono does is so important and valuable in helping those less fortunate – especially in the climate we’re facing.  After a coincidental run-in with a former pro bono client I represented during my first big win for CABA in dependency court, I was prompted to volunteer my services to its mission once more. It just warmed my heart and I felt that I really made a difference in someone’s life.
