George Heisler was quoted in the February issue of The Chicago Lawyer about how the work of legal aid organizations is vital to making pro bono programs possible for law firms. "They're out there picking and choosing the kinds of situations that merit our attention. They are our partners. Without them, we would not have a pro bono program," said Mr. Heisler. "We could put our sign out on the corner and say: 'Free legal services for the indigent,' but it wouldn't be the same thing," he added.
