Volunteer of the Month | Rebecca Sheppard

Rebecca Sheppard

We’re proud to recognize Rebecca Sheppard, as the Volunteer of the Month. Read on to learn more about Rebecca and her experience as an MVLS volunteer. 

Why do you choose to volunteer with MVLS? 
I choose to volunteer at MVLS because I am passionate about its mission statement. As a private practice tax attorney, it is difficult to help clients who cannot afford representation. To be able to help on such a large scale with MVLS through direct representation, trainings and mentorship is amazing! 

What is your favorite part about volunteering with MVLS?
I love working with passionate individuals who work tirelessly in their communities.  

Why should other attorneys and tax professionals do pro bono?
Attorneys should volunteer to help others, learn a new area of the law under provided mentorship, and help facilitate real solutions to problems that may be overwhelming for some, but are solvable with proper guidance.  

Where do you see the Impact of civil legal services in the next ten years?
I hope the civil services legal community continues to thrive.
