Founded Mediation Program under Pro Bono Project of Santa Clara County.
For many years Irene was one of the 350+ volunteer attorneys with the Pro Bono Project of Santa Clara County, handling a variety of cases for low-income residents. During this time she noticed a shortage of attorneys to address the high demand for legal assistance and advice. She proposed creating the Mediation Project under the Pro Bono Project and became the director and trainer for the program. This meditation program significantly reduced the amount of time spent in an expensive court system while empowering lower-income individuals to participate in their own legal outcomes.
Like any grassroots campaign, our strength is in the enthusiasm of our supporters. Our mighty team of dedicated residents believe change is possible when we work together. Join our Team Irene!
