Goodsill notes benefits in taking pro bono cases by Goodsill Partner Derek KobayashiGoodsill Anderson Quinn & Stifel, Honolulu, HawaiiGoodsill notes benefits in taking pro bono cases by Goodsill Partner Derek Kobayashi June 2006 Voice for Justice Newsletter of Volunteer Legal Services Hawaii "Particularly in residential landlord-tenant summary possession cases, associates learn to be resourceful and responsive to client needs," said Derek R. Kobayashi, Esq. of Goodsill Anderson Quinn & Stifel LLP.These clients are at immediate risk of being dispossessed from their homes and the pro bono attorney must work within a quick time frame.Associates who volunteer achieve professional satisfaction when they are able to fulfill the client's legal needs and also guide the client to available social services.The associates can have an impact on their clients' lives at a very basic level."We are privileged and licensed to serve the legal needs of our clients.As attorneys, we should strive to provide quality pro bono work, knowing that our work can leave a profound impact on the pro bono client," said Kobayashi. "Supporting pro bono work enhances the profile of our law firm," said Kobayashi.The firm also benefits through pro bono cases because associates taking on cases have the opportunity to interact directly with clients and witnesses, and to develop their litigation skills and substantive legal knowledge."Recently, an associate literally saved two families from being evicted from their homes," said Kobayashi."Within 48 hours of the assignment in each of these cases, she convinced the landlord to reconsider and allow the family to remain.""Personal reward is also a motivation," said Kobayashi regarding participating in pro bono cases."I am convinced that volunteering to serve in pro bono cases through Volunteer Legal Services Hawai`i will enhance an attorney's overall perspective of life, benefiting the attorney no matter what endeavors he or she decides to pursue," said Kobayashi.Kobayashi encourages associates to get out from behind their desks.Associates need to get out into the community and experience first hand the benefits of helping others."Generally, those who have come to need our representation in landlord-tenant matters are not evil people, or malingerers.Mostly, life has not been good or kind to them.Taking on these cases serves as a constant reminder of how, except for good fortune, you might easily find yourself needing the help," said Kobayashi.
