Volunteer Spotlight

How does it work?  YOU make it work. Idaho Volunteer Lawyers Program and Idaho Legal Aid Services depend on the dedication and generosity of Idaho attorneys. Whether you choose to take a case, act as a mentor to another attorney or volunteer at one of our free legal clinics, your time truly makes a difference. 

We'd like to introduce you to one of our volunteers.  Meet Chynna!

Favorite IVLP moment?

My favorite moment is seeing individuals who have hit rock bottom come back at life in full force. The first time I volunteered at the Interfaith Sanctuary, I had a stereotypical image in my mind of what it would be like. Boy, was I wrong. I saw firsthand just how smart, motivated, and kind everyone was. They truly are just trying to get back on their feet. It is a humbling experience. 

Why do you make the time to do pro bono service? What does it mean to you? 

The law can be scary. Finding a lawyer can be scarier . . . and expensive. We all have a free hour or two to spare in order to help someone who cannot afford an attorney. Pro bono is also a great way to break out of your comfort zone.
