Volunteer Training Day – An Inspiring Session

On Saturday, April 28th the Harriett Buhai Center held its family law training for new volunteers at Loyola Law School. Keynote speaker Judge Willett, HBCFL Board President Jessica Uzcategui and experienced volunteer attorneys joined with Center staff lawyers in teaching to the nearly 70 new enrollees.

Here is just a taste of the wonderful feedback the Center has received regarding the training so far:


“Thank you for a wonderful program. Great materials, excellent workshop leaders and beautifully planned day”. -B.B., CA Attorney


 “I would like to thank all the staff at the Harriett Buhai Center for Family Law for unforgettable and outstanding presentation on Saturday. Especially staff attorney Meredith and Volunteer attorney Iran that shared their valuable experience with all of us. I am looking forward to start my volunteer duties and hoping to continue for years to come. Thank you” –H.S., Law Grad


 “Thanks again for organizing the training. It was very inspiring and instructive especially for me who hasn’t practiced law in quite some time. I haven’t used my brain like that in a long time!” –K.B., CA Attorney


“I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the seminar this weekend! The Staff and Volunteer Attorneys were so knowledgeable and friendly, I learned so much, and the entire experience was amazing!! I just wish I had heard about this center and the volunteer opportunities offered earlier. I look forward to my first volunteer assignment at the center soon. Thanks again for everything.” –D.L., CA Attorney


 “I must tell you that Saturday by far exceeded my expectations! I was so touched by all the lovely stories and impressed by your wonderful staff. I am so looking forward to my first day as a volunteer.” –T.C., Paralegal
