Adam and Homa Woodrum were recognized with October 2015 Pro Bono Volunteers of the month at the October Family Court Bench Bar Meeting. The award was presented to Woodrum Law LLC by Judges Sullivan and Hoskin. You can read more on the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada Website here. An excerpt follows:
When we asked Adam and Homa why they do pro bono work, they responded that they see the crucial need for access to justice so often in court and want to do their part to combat the problem. On numerous occasions while waiting for their cases to be heard, they have seen pro se litigants struggling to present their cases. And while they can’t stand up and volunteer to represent every pro se litigant they see, they can do their part by volunteering for Ask-A-Lawyer and agreeing to represent clients who have already been approved for pro bono services through Legal Aid Center. In their words, “You can’t always do everything, but you can do something and hope it makes a difference.”
The Legal Aid Center clients who have been represented by Homa and Adam can attest to the difference these attorneys have made in their lives. Whether it is the veteran on disability whom Homa meet at Ask-A-Lawyer and agreed to represent just a couple weeks ago in a paternity and guardianship matter or the young mother whom Adam assisted in a divorce trial against her abusive husband, the attorneys of Woodrum Law are willing to step up on short notice and donate their time to assist low-income clients who desperately need an attorney.
