NEW YORK and LOS ANGELES – Nov. 11, 2021 – Good in Practice, Greenberg Traurig, LLP’s podcast focused on pro bono, released episode 22 titled “Honoring Those Who Served with Pro Bono Service.” Good in Practice is hosted by Shareholder Caroline J. Heller, chair of the global law firm’s Global Pro Bono Program and commercial litigator in the New York office.
In honor of Veterans Day, Heller speaks with Greenberg Traurig’s Adam Siegler, of counsel in the firm’s Los Angeles office and its co-pro bono coordinator, veteran, and founder of Greenberg Traurig’s Military & Veterans Program. They discuss Siegler’s work with both veterans and active military members as well as his own service and why it is so important to him to continue to give back to those who served our country. Siegler explains the different legal barriers members of the military, both active and retired, may face over time, and Heller discusses how non-veteran attorneys can help.
Good in Practice tells the powerful stories of the good pro bono work can achieve, highlighting the work of GT attorneys, staff, and clients. The goal is to encourage all practitioners to assist underserved and vulnerable communities by providing much-needed legal counsel on a volunteer basis.
