Congratulations to Full Circle Fund Member and Hanson Bridgett LLP Senior Counsel Leslie Keil, who was recently honored by the Lawyer's Committee for Civil Rights with the James T. Caleshu Award. At the 25th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Awards Luncheon, she was recognized for her outstanding pro-bono contributions to the Legal Services for Entrepreneurs (LSE) program.
The James T. Caleshu Award, presented January 26 in San Francisco, honors those who have made extraordinary pro bono contributions to the Committee, an organization devoted to advancing the rights of people of color, the poor, immigrants and refugees, and its LSE program.
Over the past year, Leslie has donated her time to LSE, helping low-income individuals start their own for-profit businesses. In this video by Hanson Bridgett, Leslie explains more about the partnership with LSE.Pro Bono Transactional Work from Hanson Bridgett on Vimeo.
