Congratulations: 10 years of community service
It is our pleasure to congratulate Amy Honan, director at Michael Lynch Family Lawyers, and Polly Richardson, associate at Michael Lynch Family Lawyers, on both having achieved 10-year anniversaries of community service at the Caxton Legal Centre Inc.
Amy and Polly have attended over this time to provide Family Law advice at evening legal sessions as volunteer lawyers.
Amy talks fondly of this experience: “Even when there have been busy work days, where I have left work to go to volunteering feeling exhausted, every time after volunteering I will walk out of the Centre feeling completely revitalised. Helping those who truly need it, is incredibly satisfying work.”
Polly has also shared her feelings regarding this rewarding experience: “Volunteering adds such richness to my professional life. Meeting and speaking with people, from all walks of life about the very emotional matter of their families, brings about such unexpected experiences”. Polly believes that making even a small difference in our community happens when we reach out of our own worlds and find how we can help those around us. “By sharing through volunteering, the knowledge and experience I have been afforded, won’t change the word but could make a small difference”, says Polly.
Amy’s and Polly’s ongoing support, generosity and contribution are valued not only by her clients, but also the Caxton Legal Centre Inc and Michael Lynch Family Lawyers teams.
Well done, Polly and Amy!!!
