Cades Schutte Recognized During Hawaii Access to Justice Commission’s 2017 Pro Bono Celebration

Cades Schutte was recognized for their Access to Justice pro bono contributions during Hawaii 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 Hawaii, the Hawaii Access to Justice Commission, the Hawaii State Bar Association, Legal Aid Society of Hawaii and other legal service providers and county bar associations as self-help centers for low- and moderate-income residents of Hawaii. 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. Associate Jacob L. Garner accepted an award on behalf of the firm.

In addition to recognizing volunteer attorneys and law firms, Raynette Ah Chong was recognized by the Hawaii 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.
