Teresa L. Anderson received a Pro Bono Certificate during the Installation and Awards Dinner of the KBA Annual Meeting and Joint Judicial Conference held June 15 in Overland Park.
Anderson is an attorney in the Overland Park office of Polsinelli Shughart where she handles family court appointments for the firm’s attorneys, which includes allegations of abuse and neglect of children in Jackson County. In addition, she is a volunteer for both Legal Aid in their V.A.P. program and Kansas Legal Services, where she handles domestic cases.
The KBA awards a number of Pro Bono Certificates of Appreciation to lawyers who are now employed full time by an organization that has, as its primary purpose, the provision of free legal services to the poor; who, with no expectation of receiving a fee, have provided direct delivery of legal services or criminal matters to a client or client group that does not have the resources to employ compensated counsel; who have made a voluntary contribution of a significant portion of time to providing legal services to the poor without charge; and/or whose voluntary contributions have resulted in increased access to legal services on the part of low- and moderate-income persons.
