Here’s an Open Casting Call for Pro Bono Work

The Indiana Lawyer

In The Indiana Lawyer, associates Molly Madden and Cassidy Segura Clouse share the first part of their three-part series covering programs where seasoned attorneys with subject-matter expertise, newly minted attorneys, and professional staff work together to serve clients in a sum greater than their parts.

In the article, the co-authors share the work of Candice Holcomb, paralegal in the firm’s corporate practice, who embodies the principle of creating opportunities upward. They note working in small teams with diverse members can allow everyone to fully commit to a matter without being spread too thin. When firms encourage and enable everyone to serve their communities in right-sized bites, pro bono participation can go from being an unfulfilled need or overbearing burden to an impactful collaboration that benefits clients, the community, and employees alike.

Madden and Clouse encourage legal professionals to not let the fear of inexperience keep you from doing something good for those who need it most.
