Yetter Coleman is pleased to announce it has received the Houston Bar Foundation award for Outstanding Small Firm Contribution to the Houston Volunteer Lawyers for 2013.
Recognized for its pro bono efforts involving estate, tax and family law, Dori Kornfeld Goldman accepted the award on behalf of the firm at the HBF’s Annual Luncheon that was held on Tuesday, February 25th. “We are very proud to be able to provide the support of our lawyers through the Houston Bar Foundation and via our own firm efforts to individuals and families when it is most needed,” Goldman said.
Yetter Coleman has actively provided pro bono representation through the Houston Volunteer Lawyers for a number of years. The firm is also currently working with co-counsel, Children’s Rights, a national advocacy group, and Haynes and Boone, in an effort to institute widespread reform on behalf of 12,000 children who are currently in the Texas foster care system. Our lawyers have also recently won major appeals involving political asylum and habeas procedure.
