Do lawyers have a heart? Even pro bono work might be available

E. Kent Winward, Standard-Examiner columnist
Dec 13 2013 - 2:42pm

Christmas Season -- a time for giving, peace on earth and goodwill to all. Not exactly the time most of us think (or want to think) about the law. Yes, there may still be a few new personal injury lawsuits due to Black Friday stampeding, but the majority of us are nestled in our homes against the cold and the inversion.

Last week I went into the pharmacy to pick up a prescription. Besides being convenient, my pharmacy has a frequent drug buyer card that when it is filled up they give me a $25 gift card of my choice.
