SBLC Recognizes Meghan Williams with the Pro Bono Attorney of the Year award
February 12, 2014
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.
