Legal Aid’s James Springer profiled in the National Law Journal
Legal Aid volunteer attorney James Springer was one of the three lawyers featured in recent articles published by the National Law Journal and the ABA Journal about attorneys who, after retiring from distinguished careers in private practice, dedicated their time and skills to a public interest legal services organization. Since 2005, Jim has been conducting intake and working part-time in Legal Aid’s public benefits unit, handling a variety of Social Security, Medicaid, and food stamps matters. He was previously a partner at Dickstein Shapiro Morin & Oshinsky LLP, where he handled antitrust and other litigation for both plaintiffs and defendants, with a particular emphasis on appellate practice. In June 2007, Jim was named pro bono lawyer of the year by the District of Columbia Bar.
