Volunteer of the Year honoree Amie Medley of Arnold & Porter
and members of the Board of Supervisors
Sara Rondon, DVP Project Coordinator, Deborah Kelly, DVP Directing Attorney, Amie Medley, Award Winner from Arnold & Porter, and Bruce Berra, LACBA CFO, are all smiles at the County of Los Angeles’ Volunteer of the Year Award Luncheon at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Amie is a long-term volunteer at Los Angeles County Bar Association’s Domestic Violence Legal Services Project, including both clinic work and pro bono representation.
On March 16, 2016, the Los Angeles County Bar Association’s Domestic Violence Legal Services Project trained attorneys, paralegals, and law school students on the proper preparation of the 35-page temporary restraining order petition.
After the training, the seminar’s attendees registered to volunteer at the clinic’s Stanley Mosk Courthouse location, the highest-volume free legal service clinic in California, which helps victims file for protection against their batterers. In 2015, the clinic assisted nearly 5,000 persons.
