TVAS PRO BONO SERVICES
For those of you who do not know, Tarrant Volunteer Attorney Services’ “TVAS” mission is to encourage and recognize pro bono services performed by Tarrant County attorneys and to connect Tarrant County attorneys with the Tarrant County indigent community who could not otherwise afford representation. From TVAS’ inception in 2012, FWPA has partnered with TVAS to support its pro bono efforts in Tarrant County. Additionally, the FWPA Pro Bono Chair sits on the TVAS committee. In 2018, the Tarrant County Bar / Tarrant County Bar Foundation allowed TVAS to change the structure of its co-chairs. Since 2018, the TVAS Committee Co-Chairs are one attorney and one paralegal.
FWPA continues to play an important part in making the TVAS mission a reality. With FWPA’s support of Tarrant County Attorneys, TVAS is able to provide a larger number of Tarrant County Citizens with access to Justice.
Each year, FWPA bequeaths the honor of Pro Bono Volunteer of the year award to a deserving FWPA member. Additionally, all pro bono volunteers are recognized at the FWPA Annual Holiday Luncheon. Please join FWPA in helping give back to our committee. Contact Julie Sherman, TBLS-BCP or Monty Mayes, TBLS-BCP, TVAS Co-Chairs.
