As most of you know, I am completely dedicated to pro bono work and promoting it among attorneys. I believe cases should be taken on the merits and not on basis of money alone. I know we all need to pay rent, utilities, staff and so forth, but there are many people with severe violations of human and civil rights, and loss of liberties too great to ignore.
I do believe that the courts should be provided with Public Defenders, according to income, where the loss of all money and housing is in question.
so the ISBA has an online pledge and I have taken it and I have also posted a bio on their website that features humanitarian legal services.
I hope other attorneys are inspired to do this and that the public encourages attys to do more pro bono or low cost legal work
