Dallas, TX — (BUSINESSWIRE) — Dallas family law attorney Aubrey Connatser has shown her commitment to pro bono legal services in Texas by contributing more than $70,000 to the Equal Access to Justice Campaign of the Dallas Bar Association. Her contributions over the past several years benefit the Dallas Volunteer Attorney Program (DVAP), a free, civil legal aid program of the DBA and Legal Aid of Northwest Texas.
Although Aubrey is not a “big firm” lawyer, her gift of $30,000 this year was the largest from a Dallas-area law firm. She believes one of the most important things a Dallas lawyer can do is either give money or volunteer time to help low-income residents with legal problems. The deadline for the Equal Access to Justice Campaign for 2015 is the end of the year.
“We are so blessed as attorneys,” says the Managing Member of Connatser Family Law. “We have the chance to make a huge impact on someone’s life by doing things that, to us, are really simple, but help others with things that are insurmountable for them.”
Aubrey founded Connatser Family Law in 2013. She has been named one of the Top 100 Attorneys in Texas and one of the Top 50 Women Attorneys in Texas (Thomson Reuters, 2014-15). She has been selected one of the Best Lawyers in Dallas (D Magazine, 2011) and Best Lawyers in America (Woodward White, 2011-16). All of the attorneys in her firm have volunteered with DVAP and Aubrey encourages that.
The Connatser firm offers a wide range of family law services, including divorce, child custody and visitation, complex property and business settlements, paternity determination, marital agreements, modifications of existing orders and collaborative law. The firm is located in the Uptown section of Dallas and can be contacted at (214) 617-1583 or email@example.com.
Through DVAP, more than 3,000 volunteer attorneys donate their time and legal skills to help low-income Dallas County residents resolve legal disputes. More than 600,000 people in the county qualify for DVAP’s help, while the number of people living in poverty continues to grow.
