IVLP Says Thanks With Wall of Fame
Please join us in saying a special thanks to the 765 attorneys who accepted or completed pro bono assignments in family law, individual rights, immigration, consumer protection, wills, benefits, nonprofit corporation issues and other special needs for IVLP applicants in 2012. Many attorneys named below represent(ed) victims of domestic violence in family law cases, thereby helping traumatized parents and their children get on with their lives free from physical and psychological abuse. Others took up the challenge to represent or assist prisoners in federal court litigation, stepped in to represent Court Appointed Special Advocates in a child protection cases, or helped a grandparent rescue an innocent grandchild from a dysfunctional home by establishing guardianship. This list includes volunteer attorneys in Child Protection Act and individual rights (federal court) cases as well. Nevertheless, IVLP does not want to miss the opportunity to say thank you to these generous attorneys and to congratulate them for their part in helping so many individuals have a better life.

The IVLP Wall of Fame also includes the names of other attorneys who participate in activities such as Advice and Counsel given at Senior Centers, at the St. Vincent DePaul Center in Coeur d’Alene, on the Bankruptcy Helpline, to IVLP clients, or at Stand Down, providing legal assistance to Veterans in Boise.
