What a year 2015 was—it's now been 6 months since I gave away nearly all of my belongings in Oakland and set off for this pro bono lawyering journey. A huge thank you for supporting Attorney on the Move financially and emotionally. Also, these are the last few days of the crowdfunding push to ensure this project is fully funded until the end of next year—thank you so much to those who have already donated & to all for your consideration!

There are so many memories I have of these last 6 months—here are some highlights from each project stop:

This is Terryl—the solo practitioner I worked with in very rural northern Montana—right next to the Blackfeet Reservation. Most of my time was spent on this case against the federal government re: the flooding of many homes on the reservation.
