Ms. Williams at Res Judicata Race in Chicago, 2007
"Whenever I am asked to take on a pro bono case by Prairie State Legal Services, I almost always agree to take the case. I also take part in any charity event designed to advance the legal service organizations. I believe in giving of my time so that the underprivileged can also have legal representation. I have seen too many examples of the indigent defendants getting the shaft, simply because they did not have counsel.
I volunteer my time and work hard as a volunteer because I get so much out of volunteering. The clients who benefit are very likeable, and very appreciative. I also volunteer at a local hospital, and when I am often thanked for my time I smile to myself because I'm the one who should be thanking them!
