Did you know attorneys have an ethical and professional obligation to perform pro bono work on behalf of the poor who would otherwise have no access to the legal system?
From one of my favorite pro bono cases, adventures and all…
“Several years ago I fled an abusive husband who had brought me to San Diego from Canada, was homeless and living in domestic violence shelters, could not obtain employment as I had no work visa or citizenship status at all. To make matters worse, my husband was trying to obtain custody of my baby daughter.
It was a hopeless situation that I could not see my way out of until I met Shana Black, and retained her as my attorney free of charge on a strictly volunteer basis! Little did Shana know that being my attorney would get her stalked and harassed relentlessly, slandered, and even led on a high speed chase down the freeway!
She never once said “ok, maybe you should find another attorney.” She stuck by me and fought my abusive ex husband with every bit of legal might she possessed, no matter how much abuse he flung her way, and it was a lot, it was intense, and it was never ending. If it were not for her I would have never gotten out of that situation with my daughter or my sanity.”
For the assistance of a San Diego Attorney, please contact Shana J. Black at (619) 557-0122 for a case assessment.
