most rewarding during her time volunteering
at the MJC has been the appreciation
and gratefulness expressed by the people
helped. While such efforts may seem small
in comparison to the complexities that
often ¿ll work days, they may make a huge
difference to someone unfamiliar with, and
overwhelmed by, the legal world.
