(Including Pro Bono)

Christina George

Meet Christina George. Christina is an associate at Greenberg Traurig, LLP whose work focuses on financial and commercial real estate transactions. Up until this year, she had little to no experience with low-income clients or adult guardianship cases.

Meet Griselda and Jose. They are the parents of an adult son with severe mental health disabilities. Although they had sought guardianship of their son before, they were unable to proceed because of their limited English-speaking abilities.

CVLS was confident that Christina, Griselda, and Jose were a perfect match. Even without prior experience, Christina handled their case beautifully with help and guidance from supervising attorney, Deepa Arora. The match-making would not have been complete without our intake specialist, Jennifer Guadarrama, interpreting in and out of court.

Our pro bono attorneys don’t have always have a wealth of experience in a specific practice area. However, with our support, they provide expert representation to those that need it the most.

As for Christina, she’s not done yet. She has her eyes set on a future adoption case. We’re pretty confident that she will be a perfect match for that client too.
