Shutts & Bowen hosts Orlando reception for Project H.E.L.P.
SHUTTS & BOWEN’S Orlando office recently hosted a reception for Project H.E.L.P. to honor the groups volunteer efforts in the Orlando Metropolitan Area. Project H.E.L.P. (Homeless Experience Legal Protection) enlists local attorneys, law students, and law firm secretaries and paralegals in cities across the country to provide pro bono legal assistance to homeless individuals. This assistance often takes the form of a single consultation but occasionally extends further, depending on clients’ needs. Volunteers meet with their clients at local shelters and other social service organizations that are accessible to the homeless population. The recent event was aimed at recognizing local volunteers and to inspire potential volunteers to join the cause. The Legal Aid Society of the Orange County Bar Association, Inc., and to the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida also took part. Among the reception’s guests were Florida Bar President Michelle Suskauer, who spoke at the reception. Charles Robinson Fawsett of Shutts & Bowen was recognized for his work and “tireless dedication to Project H.E.L.P.” From the left are Richard McMillin, Judge Gail A. Adams, and Edward O’Sheehan.
