Meet May’s Volunteer of the Month
In law school, at CLE courses, and elsewhere, every attorney hears about the impact of pro bono work. At Philadelphia VIP, where volunteers represent their neighbors living just a short bus ride away, this impact come into sharp focus. Our May Volunteer of the Month, Meghan Henry, observes what every VIP volunteer knows firsthand: “Just having an attorney by your side makes a world of difference.”
Meghan is a Partner at Morgan & Akins, where her practice encompasses defending premises liability claims, commercial trucking claims, personal and commercial auto accidents, and more. When her firm’s leadership sent out a personal appeal to support VIP, Meghan answered the call. “I didn’t realize how easy it was to help,” she says. She’s been defending VIP clients in auto accident and debt collection suits ever since.
Meghan’s expertise in auto accident and personal injury defense translates well into her work with VIP. She explains that unlike corporate clients, which respond to these suits as a matter of course, VIP clients often don’t know where to begin.
