NEW YORK – Jan. 19, 2021 – Good in Practice, Greenberg Traurig’s podcast focused on pro bono, released its sixth episode “Wellspring Living & its Work to Help Survivors of Human Trafficking.” Good in Practice is hosted by Shareholder Caroline J. Heller, chair of the law firm’s Global Pro Bono Program.
In this episode, Heller is joined by Wellspring Living’s Founder and Executive Director, Mary Francis Bowley, and colleagues from the firm’s Atlanta office: Associate Christopher Walker, who has provided pro bono work for Wellspring Living, and Marketing Director August Trammell, who is a current board member of the organization. The episode delves into how Wellspring Living came to be; the needs it addresses of those who are survivors of sexual abuse, trafficking, and exploitation; and how Greenberg Traurig’s Atlanta office not only supports the organization but helps individual women in its programs.
Atlanta’s Managing Shareholder Ted Blum also joins the episode to share some insight as to how and why Wellspring Living is so important to Greenberg Traurig, including its partnership with Wellspring’s Women’s Academy.
Good in Practice is formatted to tell the powerful stories of the good pro bono can achieve, highlighting the work of Greenberg Traurig attorneys, staff, and clients. The goal is to encourage all practitioners to assist undeserved and vulnerable communities by providing much-needed legal counsel on a volunteer basis.
