Congrats to Our Own Sara Swiren for Her Pro Bono Service


Think of pro bono service like a ray of hope for those whose lives have been turned upside down because of a legal problem.

The rules of professional responsibility state that lawyers should aspire to provide at least 50 hours of pro bono legal services every year. "Every lawyer, regardless of professional prominence or professional workload, should find time to participate in or otherwise support the provision of legal services to the disadvantaged" (comment to Arizona's Rule 6.1). This is not a mandatory rule - lawyers volunteer their own time and resources to provide pro bono representation to those who really need it.

"Every year," according to the Volunteer Lawyers Program, "the 1,200 attorneys and law students who volunteer through the VLP give the generous gift of time, service, and expertise to thousands of Arizonans who would not otherwise have access to justice."

Sara Swiren helped provide access to justice when it mattered most.

DeShon Laraye Pullen PLC's family law attorney Sara Swiren was one of those 1,200 who volunteered through the VLP and provided pro bono services to clients who otherwise would not have had the access to justice they needed when it mattered most.

Congratulations to attorney Sara A. Swiren for her pro bono service!

When lawyers fulfill their aspirational duty to provide pro bono services for clients, it not only lifts up the client and protects or enforces their individual rights, it also lifts up the entire legal profession, and DeShon Laraye Pullen PLC is proud to be a part of the important mission to serve those who cannot afford access to justice.
