The Very Best of Our Profession: Legal Aid, Pro Bono and Our Commitment to Access to Justice

Attorneys & Professionals

Lisa Pierce Reisz, a partner in the Vorys Columbus office and the current president of the Columbus Bar Association, drafted an article for the Columbus Bar Lawyers Quarterly Winter 2018 edition about community service.

The article states:

“I love living in Columbus. I am amazed at the generosity of our community. We contribute our money and our time to the Faith Mission, the Mid-Ohio Food Bank, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, Pelotonia, BalletMet, our churches, our alma maters and thousands of other worthy charities and organizations which make such a difference to countless individuals throughout our community.

As lawyers, we can do even more. Think back to why you went to law school. I will bet somewhere in your calculus was the belief that as a lawyer you could make a fundamental systemic difference in our community: not just helping the homeless, but addressing the problems that cause homelessness.”
