Chinh Pham headshot.

I am proud to have joined the Society of Fellows and support the Boston Bar Foundation, especially its important work with families, individuals and those in the underserved communities throughout our Commonwealth. I would encourage my colleagues to join me in supporting BBF and its work by becoming a Fellow.

Participating in the Society of Fellows has given me a direct way to see our contributions at work. Lawyers in particular know how important legal services are to ensuring access to justice throughout our community. I’m proud to be part of funding the BBF, so that it can continue its long-term leadership role.

The BBF’S work is vital to the Commonwealth and those in need of access to justice. For me, becoming a Fellow was an easy decision to make – I can’t think of a better way to support an organization that provides such essential services.

The BBF’s mission to support pro bono work and access to justice for Boston’s needy is so critical to us as lawyers and citizens, and I am really grateful and excited for the opportunity to work with the BBF and the Society.

I encourage anyone who doesn’t know about the BBF to attend a session where grantees speak of their work, the importance of the BBF’s support, and its impact on access to justice in our community. I doubt that anyone who attends can walk away without feeling inspired by and energized about the BBF’s mission.

I joined the Society of Fellows because I wanted to support the Boston Bar Foundation in promoting access to justice, and in offering projects that support the community. Working as a sole practitioner, I’m glad to be able to offer pro bono services. Being a member of the Society of Fellows is a great complement, and is important to me, because of the work the BBF does to help even more people, and local students, with programs such as Law Day in the Schools and the Summer Jobs Program.

I consider providing meaningful access to legal services to all to be one of my responsibilities as an attorney. As a Junior Fellow I have joined with others to fulfill that responsibility by supporting the Boston Bar Foundation in its commitment to fund and promote innovation in legal services and expand access to justice for the underserved.
