Vice Chairs Catherine B. Engell (DLA Piper LLP, NY, NY) and Brian David Yacker (Long Beach, CA) join me in welcoming you to the Pro Bono Committee Website!
As the new Chair of the Pro Bono Committee I am hopeful that we can make this website "the go to link" for all of your tax Pro Bono matters, concerns, issues, thoughts, dreams and goals. Toward that goal I hope you will send any and all of your relevant materials to me for posting and broad distribution.
As you know the ABA - Section of Taxation is over 20,000 strong!! Therefore, we have an amazing team, network of deep and broad resources that can make a difference in the lives of everyday people across America. I have volunteered to serve in this role, because I know that it is an enormous privilege and pleasure to give to others especially something as extraordinary as our tax training and skills. As a law professor I bear witness almost every day to the steep learning curve and complexity inherent in our tax systems. This committee is a bridge between the haves and the have nots. I welcome and encourage your participation in any capacity. So please send me any and all of your suggestions, ideas, problems and solutions via email at [email protected]
