Insights: News Pro Bono Mentoring Effect: High Impact Help For Clients
Washington Lawyer, November/December 2021
"Matt Chung just may have found his pro bono niche. After the successful outcome of his first pro bono bankruptcy case, the patent attorney at Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP is eager to do more to help those saddled by crushing debt they have no ability to pay.
“When the opportunity came to volunteer with the [D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center’s] Bankruptcy Clinic, I jumped at it,” says Chung, who earned his JD from New York Law School in 2012. “I wasn’t familiar with the law itself, but I thought that maybe through this, I may be able to one day also help the community with student loan relief. I think this is where I can make an impact.”
While we are pleased to have you contact us by telephone, surface mail, electronic mail, or by facsimile transmission, contacting Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP or any of its attorneys does not create an attorney-client relationship. The formation of an attorney-client relationship requires consideration of multiple factors, including possible conflicts of interest. An attorney-client relationship is formed only when both you and the Firm have agreed to proceed with a defined engagement.
