Fish will be recognized at the Volunteer Legal Services of Central Texas’ Covington Pro Bono Service Awards for our work towards the organization’s mission of ensuring that poverty is not a barrier to justice.

The Covington Pro Bono Service Awards are an opportunity to celebrate the attorneys and firms who have devoted an extraordinary amount of time providing pro bono legal services to the low-income clients of Volunteer Legal Services (VLS) in the past year.

The organization stated that this year’s honorees provided more than 15,000 hours of legal services to thousands of Central Texans in need and over $160,000.

The Volunteer Legal Services of Central Texas provides civil legal services to low-income people through attorney volunteers in Travis County. These attorneys help people with critical matters, such as helping victims of abuse end violent relationships, connecting persons with disabilities with medical and financial benefits, and keeping people out of homelessness by defending against wrongful evictions and foreclosures.

Fish has worked with VLS for many years, representing low-income clients on probate matters, wills and estates issues, consumer law matters, and in matrimonial cases in family court. Last year alone, Fish donated over 300 hours to VLS cases. Fish attorneys Heather Flanagan, Matthew Wernli, Lealon Martin, and James Babineau have all recently worked with the organization on several matters.
