On July 14, 2014, Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP lawyers boarded OneJustice’s Justice Bus along with in-house lawyers from clients LinkedIn and Facebook to travel to Napa Valley and help bring legal assistance to low-income senior citizens.
The bus traveled to Saint Helena and Yountville, where the volunteers assisted senior residents in drafting wills, financial powers of attorney and advanced health care directives.
Munger Tolles attorneys participating in the event were Jerome C. Roth, Kristin Linsley Myles, Rosemarie T. Ring, Jonathan H. Blavin, Laura K. Lin and Caroline McKay Cunningham.
Ms. Lin serves on the Advisory Board of OneJustice, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing legal assistance to underserved communities in California. The Justice Bus Project transports teams of volunteer attorneys from urban areas on day trips to rural California areas to provide pro bono legal assistance to low-income individuals that cannot easily travel to surrounding cities and would otherwise lack access to legal services.
