LA Partner Jim Burgess Talks the Value of Giving Back

USC Law Magazine
July 2019

USC Law Magazine profiled Sheppard Mullin Los Angeles partner Jim Burgess, who is also president of the board of directors for LAFLA, the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles, on his passion and commitment to pro bono work.  In an excerpt:

“One of our goals at LAFLA is to make it much easier for attorneys to plug into the foundation and offer their services for people in need of such things as domestic violence restraining orders and eviction defense,” said Burgess. “I’ve always been a person who advocates for other people, even going back to high school. I’ve always said I’m a better advocate for other people than I am for myself.”
