Cades Schutte was recognized for their Access to Justice pro bono contributions during Hawai‘i Access to Justice Commission’s 2017 Pro Bono Celebration on Wednesday, October 26, 2017.
Access to Justice Rooms, located in the Judiciary’s courthouses, were created by the Judiciary State of Hawai‘i, the Hawai‘i Access to Justice Commission, the Hawaii State Bar Association, Legal Aid Society of Hawai‘i and other legal service providers and county bar associations as self-help centers for low- and moderate-income residents of Hawai‘i. These rooms are staffed by volunteer legal experts who offer short-term legal advice and/or legal information to help self-represented litigants better understand the legal processes they may be facing.
Cades was honored and fortunate to be able to staff the Honolulu Access to Justice Room for the month of May 2017.
In addition to recognizing volunteer attorneys and law firms, Raynette Ah Chong was recognized by the Hawai‘i Appleseed Center for Law and Economic Justice and the Access to Justice Commission’s 2017 high school essay contest winners were recognized at the celebration.
