Although Texas has more than 100,000 licensed attorneys, many of its residents’ legal needs remain unmet. This is particularly true in appellate courts, where fewer attorneys practice. Luckily, Texas lawyers, judges, and bar leaders have worked to connect unrepresented litigants with counsel willing to handle their appeals pro bono. In this episode, Todd Smith and Jody Sanders visit with appellate specialist Michael Truesdale about pro bono appellate services and programs in Texas, Mike’s involvement in launching some of those projects, and his continued efforts to raise awareness and expand their reach. Mike also talks about how attorneys can get involved and how pro bono appellate work can serve those needing access to legal representation while providing pro bono counsel with valuable learning opportunities and experience.
