End of the Year Madness!

Wow, we are already wrapping up the end of the year, which is pretty amazing to think of all our accomplishments now looking back.

Here’s the biggest one: Between clinics and referrals, we have done 1,633 cases so far this year! Now compare that to the 1,082 we had last year and you can see why I’m excited. So thank you all SO much for everything that you’ve done!

However, the year isn’t over yet! Yes, I’m going to ask one last time for this year if you have time in your holiday schedule to take on a last minute case. I’m trying to get all our current clients an attorney for Christmashanakwanza! Right now I have 6 collection/tort type cases, 2 Davidson Co. divorce cases, 10 Williamson Co family law style cases, and an unemployment appeal case. If you have Pro Bono hours you still need to meet at your firm, this is the fastest way to get it!

If you would like more information on any of these cases (and if you’re in Williamson County, imagine me on my knees begging you) please give me a call or e-mail by Wednesday the 23rd. After that and until the New Year, you can still call the office and ask for Lucinda and she’ll find you one.

And finally, if you have NOT gotten your case update forms back to us, there is still time! The fax number is on the bottom of the form. Mark it to my attention and fax it in. This is the only way I know what hours you have done to be able to tell the CLE to get your ethics credits!!!

Happy Holidays to all of you, and wishing you all a happy and healthy New Year! See you again in 2010!

Training and CLE Opportunity – Divorce and Domestic Violence

There is going to be a training on Thursday, December 10th from 1pm to 4pm that will cover how to do a Pro Bono Divorce as well as discussing the topic of domestic violence. You can earn 3 hours towards general CLE credit.

This is a free training, and all we would ask would be for you to be added to our volunteer list for divorce cases in Davidson County.

If you are interested or have any questions, please e-mail me for further information.

Thanks!

CLE Opportunities Reminder

Just wanted to remind everyone that it is not too late to earn some CLE credit! We are still open through the holidays, looking to find attorneys to help out our clients. If you’re down on some CLE, or just want to spread some holiday cheer to the community, please reach out to us!

Also please be aware that we are having a clinic on Saturday, November 28th – the Saturday after Thanksgiving. So far we have invited 20 clients to the clinic, and more will be walking in, and only 4 attorneys have signed up to help out.

If you want to put in some holiday volunteering at the clinic for a few hours Saturday morning, please give Victoria a call or click the link on the left to e-mail her. And yes, you can earn hours for CLE credit at the clinic too!

Thank you!

CLE Reminder!

There is only two months left for you to get those required CLE hours done. Remember that you can earn them by taking on Pro Bono cases! You earn 1 CLE credit for every 5 billable hours of work you spend on a case, and you can earn up to 3 credits through us. How easy is that, right?

Plus you get to help out someone in need in the community so it’s a karmic bonus!

Also, if your firm has Pro Bono requirements you still need to fulfill, we can help you on those too!

I’ve got a nice supply of cases for everyone, so don’t hesitate. Just shoot off an e-mail or give me a call and I’ll do my best to get you set up and on your way to finishing those requirements.
