I serve as the pro bono coordinator for Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, a large international law firm with offices in San Francisco and Menlo Park. Over the past two and a half years, I have worked with Bay Area Legal Aid ("BALA") to identify and place pro bono cases with our attorneys. BALA is an outstanding referral source for our pro bono attorneys because they consistently provide us with sophisticated, cutting edge cases that are of strong interest to our attorneys. In addition, they serve clients who are most in need in areas of law, such as family law and immigration, which are often difficult to place at a law firm. BALA's screening and mentoring are all first-rate. In addition, BALA has an outstanding pro bono coordinator who is incredibly responsive, understands the need of law firms, and provides great feedback, mentoring and support to us. Overall, I believe BALA is one of the finest legal services providers with which we work anywhere in the country.

As an attorney, I have done significant pro bono work in conjunction with Bay Area Legal Aid in the area of immigration law and domestic violence. The Bay Area Legal Aid attorneys with whom I have worked are fantastic, committed professionals who have far exceeded my expectations. Their commitment to the communities they serve is remarkable, and I very much appreciate their efforts to reach out to attorneys in the private sector in order to assist us all in fulfilling our commitment to the communities in which we live and work. Thank you!
