VIDEO: Meet the Face of Pro Bono
Just a week away from Thanksgiving, we at The PBEye are thinking about what we’re most thankful for. Overall, we’re very thankful for all of our friends and supporters who spend so much of their time and energy fighting for access to justice for those in need. We’re also thankful this year for having had the opportunity to meet Dewey Bozella and hear his words on the importance of pro bono at the 2011 PBI Annual Dinner. Bozella, who spent 26 years in prison for a wrongful murder conviction, was freed two years ago with the help of pro bono counsel from Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP*. Below are Bozella’s inspiring remarks from the Dinner.
