Memphis Lawyer Sees Career with MALS as 'Mission Work'

The Tennessee Supreme Court asks lawyers to "aspire to render at least 50 hours of pro bono publico legal services per year,” and many do that and more. In Memphis, Linda Warren Seely is there to help them make those hours count. As director of private attorney involvement for Memphis Area Legal Services (MALS), Seely coordinates pro bono work for the principal provider of civil legal assistance to low-income individuals and the elderly in the area. She tells the Memphis Daily News that  her long career in bringing pro bono help to those in need is personally rewarding and feels like “mission work.”
