I have always sought to be a contribution to my clients, my family and my community. Here are some examples of my contributions.
I was recently contacted by a woman with family law problems, but she could not afford my fees and she needed someone in another part of the state. I met with her at no charge and referred her to a volunteer lawyer service in the town where her case was being heard.
I started to work as a volunteer work with Denver's all-jazz community radio station-KUVO. I have been a volunteer substitute on-air host since 2008, and also help out during their pledge drives.
Back in 2006, when Manual High School students were asked to transfer to another high school for one academic year, I assisted by acting as a volunteer mentor to help students make the transition from Manual to another DPS school. When Manual re-opened, I volunteered as a tutor once a week for the re-opened school.
These are ways that I give back to my community.
