Fish Associate Xin Ma has been named a Community Legal Services of East Palo Alto (CLSEPA) “Advocate of the Year” for his extensive pro bono work with the organization.

Xin, a patent prosecutor in Fish’s Silicon Valley office, has helped advise over 60 local indigent individuals in landlord-tenant disputes in the past year.

As a regular participant of the organization’s Housing Intake clinic, Xin has spent well over 200 hours counseling residents who are unable to afford legal guidance on issues such as unsafe housing conditions, unlawful eviction and landlord behavior, and wrongful foreclosure.

Xin was one of five attorney volunteers recognized by the CLSEPA at their annual gala and fundraiser for outstanding provision of pro bono services to low income community members.

Several law firms and corporate partners, including PayPal Inc., were also honored at the event for their efforts to support effecting significant, positive changes.

The CLSEPA provides transformative legal services to diverse communities in East Palo Alto and beyond through its immigration, housing, and economic advancement programs. For more information, visit http://www.clsepa.org/.
