An Invitation to Trial Practice Section Members:

In the Spring of 2012, the Trial Practice Section of the ACBA announced its collaboration with the ACBA Volunteer Legal Services Corporation (VLSC) and the East Bay Community Law Center (EBCLC). Through this collaboration, Section members and their professional colleagues have enjoyed exciting new pro bono opportunities to represent VLSC and EBCLC clients in a number of practice areas, including debt collection defense, family law, low income landlord, clean slate, and probate law.  

Read more about the exciting pro bono opportunities available for trial lawyers.

I sincerely hope that you take advantage of the unique and promising programs offered in Alameda County. To get involved, please contact me at mshklovsky@gmail.com.

Warm regards,

Michael Shklovsky, Chair of the ACBA Trial Practice Section
