CBA Host Pro Bono Clinics

Written Friday, October 25, 2019

More than 50 members served over 60 clients at the CBA's pro bono clinics held October 22 and 24 in New Britain and Bridgeport, respectively during the ABA's National Celebration of Pro Bono.

The clinics, organized by the Pro Bono Committee's Pro Bono Clinic Sub-Committee, provided free legal advice to members of the public in the areas of consumer law, immigration, family law, bankruptcy, small business, landlord/tenant, tax issues, and pardons. The preregistered clients were first screened, via telephone, by the volunteer paralegals and then they met with an attorney during half-hour appointments at the clinics.

"Our first pro bono clinics were a great success and provided a road map of details that we can improve on in the future," said Jennifer Zakrzewski, the CBA pro bono clinic sub-committee chair.  "I was impressed and grateful for the number of attorneys that came out in force to assist.  I know that the clients were certainly appreciative of the assistance they received. "

A Special Thank You to Volunteers and Organizers of Our Pro Bono Clinics
