In response to the desperate need for legal assistance to children in removal proceedings, the Y&H Soda Foundation funded a project with CLINIC to obtain counsel for children in California’s Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. Finding quality pro bono legal counsel for these children is both rewarding and challenging.
One of the rewards is establishing relationships with the many talented and generous lawyers in the San Francisco area. These lawyers often have busy practices of their own. The myriad non-profit agencies in the bay area solicit the major law firms with a steady stream of pro bono requests for a wide range of needy people.
It is challenging to compete with so many worthy causes vying for limited pro bono resources. It is important to explain why the firm should direct its resources to your case.
