Mahalo for Helping Our Veterans

Posted on Mar 14, 2014 in Featured News

The many lawyers, law clerks, law students and staff who volunteered at November’s “Ask-a-Lawyer” event were personally thanked by First Circuit Judge Ed Kubo for helping veterans with their legal issues. After presiding over Hawaii Veterans Treatment Court proceedings, Judge Kubo presented each volunteer with a Certificate of Appreciation in his courtroom on March 14.

The “Ask-a-Lawyer” event coincided with Veterans Day and was sponsored by the State Judiciary and Volunteer Legal Services of Hawaii. The event is just one of many Access to Justice programs that has been implemented statewide.

Chavela Balcita was recognized by Circuit Court Judge Edward Kubo for her work with local veterans.
