Cades Schutte attorneys supported and staffed the Honolulu Access to Justice Room (ATJR) for all of May 2022, providing pro bono legal advice through the Legal Aid Society of Hawaii. Cades Schutte has sponsored the ATJR for a month per year for ten consecutive years since its inception in 2012.
The ATJR allows attorneys to provide pro bono services to self-represented litigants, who typically have landlord-tenant, collections, restraining order, or other legal questions. Every year, Cades Schutte receives overwhelmingly positive responses from both the individuals represented and the attorneys themselves.
“We are very excited to sponsor the Access to Justice Room again this May,” said Trever K. Asam, Cades Schutte’s Pro Bono Coordinator, and an ATJR volunteer. “This year, many of our attorneys were eager to volunteer, given our firm’s incredible milestone of having sponsored for ten consecutive years, and also because our firm is celebrating its Centennial Anniversary. We look forward to continuing our relationship with ATJR and the Legal Aid Society, as well as in making a difference in our community.”
Christine E. Nowland served as a coordinator and volunteer. Cades Schutte volunteers also included Ryan M. Hamaguchi, Trisha L. Nishimoto, Kristin S. Shigemura, Keith Y. Yamada, Lindsay N. McAneeley, Ellen R. Ashford, Pōhai Nu’uhiwa Campbell, Mallory T. Martin, Reyn S.P. Ono, W. Davis Prendergast, Michael R. Soon Fah, and Troy Young.
