Estate planning attorney Misty Watson comments on why she volunteers with Legal Services of Eastern Missouri in “Pro Bono Service: A Win-Win-Win Proposition,” published in the Summer 2012 issue of Precedent. Precedent is a quarterly publication from The Missouri Bar.
When asked why she volunteers with LSEM, Watson says her motivation has changed over time:
“Initially, I began volunteering with LSEM to gain relevant experience in my practice area. I continue to be a volunteer attorney because I see the profound impact that I can have on families and individuals which otherwise would not have access to legal counsel. The work I do with legal services clients reminds me of why I became an attorney in the first place and makes me feel truly part of the community.”
