In this episode of Good in Practice, Heller talks with Greenberg Traurig Chicago office Associate LaQuenta C. Rudison about her transactional non-profit work. Rudison discusses growing up in the South Side of Chicago, how that helped shape her pro bono practice, and what led her to commit to work for and with the community that she used to call home. Heller and Rudison also discuss cultural competence and the important role it can play when helping pro bono clients.
Good in Practice is formatted to tell the powerful stories of the good pro bono work can achieve, highlighting the work of Greenberg Traurig 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.
