Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) September 06, 2012
Deborah A. Stencel, a bankruptcy attorney serving the residents of Milwaukee, spends time giving back to her community in more ways than one. Through charitable work with organizations like Volunteer Lawyers Project Consumer and Bankruptcy Legal Clinic and Wills for Heroes, Stencel is given the opportunity to lend her legal expertise to those that need it the most. Just this year, she has dedicated more than 80 hours to working pro bono cases—representing seven different individuals in the process of fighting the foreclosure of their home and/or successfully filing for bankruptcy. In addition to the volunteer work that she has already done thus far in 2012, she has already set aside time to volunteer with Wills for Heroes twice more, once in October and once in November, and at least once more at the Volunteer Lawyers Project Clinic.
Stencel has dedicated her time to these two specific organizations for a reason. The Wills for Heroes program was initially started after the tragic event of 9/11, as a way to “assist emergency personnel in preparing basic estate planning documents to protect themselves and their families” (State Bar of Wisconsin). From there, the organization was launched in various states across the U.S.—coming to Wisconsin in the Fall of 2009—as a way for any eligible first responders to prepare a will and other documents at no charge. With the help of a dedicated group of legal professionals, heroic individuals and organizations like the Milwaukee Police Department and the Wisconsin Troopers’ Association can gain peace of mind knowing that their family will be taken care of in the way that they had intended. For this reason, Attorney Deborah A. Stencel takes the time every year to give back to those brave men and women that give back her community, as well.
Similarly, she sets aside time each year to help out at the Volunteer Lawyers Project Consumer and Bankruptcy Legal Clinic. This organization explains that “the private attorneys who volunteer their time through the Volunteer Lawyers Project (VLP) believe in the principle of equal justice” (Legal Action), meaning that they care about those that have been forgotten—including the elderly, the mentally disabled and the abused. Through these clinics, Stencel accepts up to ten pro bono cases for representation each year. In doing so, she is able to assist the people that need it most, as many of them have run out of options. Thus far in 2012, she has already taken on seven different cases for free, in addition to balancing the caseload of her own bankruptcy practice at the Law Offices of Deborah A. Stencel. For this reason, it is clear that she is committed to serving the residents of her community in more ways that just one.
Deborah A. Stencel, a Milwaukee bankruptcy lawyer, is committed to making a difference in the lives of the people that come to her and ask her for help—not only through her private practice, but through various volunteer opportunities, as well. With an unwavering dedication to the well-being of her clients, she has been able to help countless individuals get back on track to a successful financial future. She understands that her clients are scared when they have been faced with the possibility of losing their home or the realization that they may have to file for bankruptcy, and as such, she takes the time to prepare them for the process ahead.
