KSLN Partners with Volunteer Lawyers Project to Provide Pro Bono Legal Services


February 7, 2017

 

KSLN associates Ashlyn M. Capote and Henry A. Zomerfeld have spearheaded a new firm-wide pro bono initiative in partnership with the Erie County Bar Association’s Volunteer Lawyers Project. Under the program, clients unable to afford attorneys will receive counseling and representation in matters including, among others, eviction proceedings in Buffalo Housing Court, tort defense, wills and estates, and family law.

 

Prior to the implementation of this new initiative, KSLN’s Family Law group regularly served as pro bono attorneys for those in need of legal representation in similar cases. KSLN’s new initiative will increase the number of firm attorneys participating in pro bono representation, as well as expand the types of matters for which the firm’s pro bono services are available.
