Tuesday Tale: Making A Statewide Impact From Her Hometown

It’s lunch time and you’ve paid your taxes! Relax with this quick read from the Bar Foundation. You’ve earned it.

In this week’s Tuesday Tale, hear how one attorney helped people across the state without leaving her hometown.


Making a Statewide Impact from her Hometown
For Kathryn DeAngelo, who has practiced law in South Carolina for 28 years, the SC Bar’s Ask-A-Lawyer Program was an easy way for her to reach out and help people in need throughout the state. “Like most of my colleagues, it is difficult to find time for ‘extra-curricular’ activities,” she said. “By participating in the program via internet chat, I feel like I have a chance to assist people who are hurting or feel damaged by real-life situations.” Last year, attorneys like Kathryn assisted 1,561 individuals on the phone or through a web chat. A variety of legal issues such as family law, wills and probate, consumer, landlord-tenant, criminal and bankruptcy were addressed in these sessions. When reflecting upon her experiences volunteering with AAL, Kathryn said that counseling those with legal questions or problems is a lawyer’s privilege. “This is a valuable and worthwhile program to the citizens of South Carolina.”
