The Timpanogos Legal Center (TLC) is an essential part of the Provo, UT legal community. There are so many people in need of legal services in the area. But because the area appears to be privileged, the underprivileged often get swept under the rug or forgotten. TLC has not forgotten the underprivileged. Not only that, TLC has helped the legal community remember the underprivileged as well.

TLC helps the U.S. legal system be what it is supposed to be: fair. I would strongly endorse TLC to anyone who believes in fairness, justice, and equality.

The Timpanogos Legal Center truly fills a need for legal services in the community. They help so many people who are unable to afford legal services and they do it with a smile on their face. It is great to see the enjoyment of those who are involved in providing such great service.

Timpanogos Legal Center provides a fantastic opportunity for law students and attorneys to partner together to serve a segment of the population who wouldn't ordinarily have the means to obtain legal counsel. I have seen first-hand what a positive impact this organization has not only on the lives of the people seeking legal advice, but for those involved in providing the service as well. All who are involved with TLC leave a little better than they came.

I was a founding board member for this important nonprofit in our community. We are the main organization to be organzing pro bono efforts of our local attorneys for deserving clients. We have had good response from attorneys in the area and we have been able to help many individuals in need. The local law school also involves students in pro bono and other service opportunities through TLC.
