Florence Project’s Pro Bono Program Featured in Arizona Attorney Magazine Blog!

To commemorate National Pro Bono Week, Tim Eigo of Arizona Attorney Magazine has written two thoughtful and informative blog pieces about the Florence Project’s growing pro bono referral program. In the first post, available here, http://azatty.wordpress.com/2010/10/26/pro-bono-florence-project/, he interviews senior staff attorney and pro bono coordinator Tally Kingsnorth about the urgent need for volunteer attorneys to represent detained clients and how the Florence Project can provide support through the process.

In the second post, available here, http://azatty.wordpress.com/2010/10/28/pro-bono-global-law/, he interviews Fennemore Craig associate Jason Covalt about his experience representing a young asylum seeker from Somalia (and winning the case!).

Thank you, Tim, for raising the profile of our pro bono referral program! If you are interested in learning more about how you can volunteer your legal skills by taking a case from the Florence Project, please contact us at firrp@firrp.org.
