Kegler Brown Attorney Wins Pro Bono AwardNovember 7, 2016
Christy Prince has been honored as the recipient of the 2016 “Outstanding Pro Bono Service by an Individual” award from the Legal Aid Society of Columbus (LASC) for her work with their Pro Bono Bankruptcy program. She and other award winners were honored at a reception at the Columbus Bar Association on October 25. Christy is a director at Kegler Brown, focusing primarily in the Creditors’ Rights + Bankruptcy area.
Christy has been involved with LASC’s pro bono bankruptcy program since it began in 2012. Inspired by her internship at a public defender’s office, she began her involvement with LASC and pro bono work early in her career, first participating in LASC’s Pro Bono Tenant Advocacy Project.
“There are a lot of causes to their problems, but I’m glad that the Pro Bono Bankruptcy Project is there to help people…” Christy said when asked about the benefits of her experience.
“I like helping people move beyond challenges in their past and get the fresh start that they are entitled to under the bankruptcy law.”
Christy joined Kegler Brown in 2007. Along with gaming law and a background in governmental affairs, she focuses on the area of creditors’ rights and bankruptcy issues and has experience in prosecuting and defending bankruptcy litigation, pursuing guarantors, and optimizing clients’ outcome in insolvency forums.
