On February 5th the SBLC held their Seventh Annual Open House.  The event was a wonderful opportunity to bring together volunteer attorneys, the SBLC’s dedicated staff, students, clients and community partners to celebrate the many successes of 2013. 

 

Numerous attorneys volunteered to help our clients this year. Without these attorneys we would not be able to reach the 821 clients that have been helped since the SBLC doors opened in 2006.  Fifteen of these attorneys were recognized for their significant volunteer hours served.  We would like to extend our sincere appreciate to the 2013 Pro Bono Champions:

 

Shannon Aaron- Multnomah County

 

Brentley Bullock- Perkins Coie

 

Gary Firestone- The City of Bend

 

Will Fisher- Miller Nash

 

John Heninger- U.S. Bank

 

David Herman- Intel Corporation

 

Sara Heskett- Holland & Knight

 

Leigh Gill- Immix Law Group

 

Levi Johnston- Intelekia

 

Brant Norquist- Stoel Rives

 

Scott Rider- Intel Corporation

 

Troy Sexton- Motschenbacher & Blattner LLP

 

Skyler Tanner- Lane Powell

 

Christi Taylor- Miller Nash

 

Michael Taylor- Holland and Knight

 


Each year we recognized one Pro Bono Attorney who has volunteered the most hours helping our clients and students. This year Meghan Williams of Miller Nash has earned that distinction.   Meghan is not a new face to the Small Business Legal Clinic. In 2010, she spent a year as our Pro Bono Coordinator, helping us to better serve the tri-county area and beyond.

 

 

The SBLC looks forward to another great year.
