Why do you volunteer with VLSC?
I’m a retired bankruptcy lawyer. When I retired, I knew I would need to get involved in something to keep myself from watching television all day. I also knew that a lot of low income debtors get their bankruptcy advice from non-attorneys and paralegals that not only charge to complete the paperwork, but who also don’t know enough to be giving out bankruptcy advice.
Volunteering for the bankruptcy clinic seemed like an obvious choice for putting my skills to work and keeping me busy.
