Denver, CO (PRWEB) November 20, 2010
As soon as the lines open, the phones start ringing and never stop. The specialization of law practices these days provides attorneys with few opportunities to answer legal questions of such a wide variety. Association President Brendan Powers, Esq., of the Denver-based law firm Spies, Powers & Robinson, joined Amy Cook-Olson, Esq., Murphy Decker Hensen & Cook-Olson; Brett Wendt, Esq., Lindquist & Vennum; Bradley Shefrin, Esq., Pryor Johnson Carney Karr Nixon; Jacquelyn Booker, Esq., Sutton & Gulley; Ian Mitchell, Esq., Thomas Pollart & Miller this week to participate in KUSA’s Lawline9 program. “We fielded calls on divorce, bankruptcy, tenant rights, employment law, workers compensation and disability insurance,” said Mr. Wendt, “People just wanted some reassurance that they were doing the right thing.”
Mr. Powers added, “Lawline9 is a great program and KUSA is to be commended on this community service. The experience serves as a good reminder to attorneys of the importance of participating in pro bono legal programs. So often, people just need a little help finding the resources that are out there.”
