SACRAMENTO —  The Inland Empire Latino Lawyers Association, Inc., though which many Best Best & Krieger LLP attorneys volunteer their services, was recently recognized as the California 61st Assembly District’s Nonprofit of the Year.
 
Assemblymember Jose Medina (D-Riverside) presented the award to IELLA, including Board Member and BB&K Partner Steve Anderson, during a ceremony in Sacramento on June 6, which is California Nonprofits Day.
 
“The Inland Empire Latino Lawyers Association provides a critical service to members of our community and acts as an advocate for some of our region’s most vulnerable,” Medina said in a statement. “I am honored to recognize them as the ‘Nonprofit of the Year’ for AD 61 and grateful for the contributions they have made to our community.”
 
IELLA provides pro bono legal services to those who cannot hire private attorneys due to limited financial resources and language barriers. With seven legal aid clinics throughout Riverside and San Bernardino counties, IELLA is the place hundreds of low-income individuals have turned to for help when a legal matter threatens their home or livelihood.

BB&K attorneys who work pro bono at IELLA legal aid clinics include: Ben Carney, Henry Castillo, Jeremiah Lee, Elizabeth Han, Miles Krieger, Albert Maldonado, Christopher Moffitt, Marissa Morimoto, Isabel Safie, Andrew Saghian, Haviva Shane, Holland Stewart,  Allen Wei-lun Ho and Jacqueline Yaeger.
