Volunteer Spotlight: David Mason

Dave has worked as a commercial finance lawyer in Chicago for 37 years, almost entirely at the law firm Goldberg Kohn Ltd.  Pro bono work, focusing on immigration matters, was a part of Dave’s practice for the last 10 years (albeit a small part).  Most of Dave’s pro bono projects involved assisting “Dreamers” who came to this country as children.  “I got great pleasure helping these hard-working young adults achieve their dream of remaining and creating lives for themselves in the United States.”  Dave always regretted that he did not find more time for more pro bono matters.  Having recently retired from practicing finance law, Dave promised himself that he would find a way to  do more pro bono work.    Dave was introduced to NSLAC by board member Laura Ulrich, a friend and spouse of one of Dave’s law partners.    “While I have been involved with the Clinic for only a short time, I have been impressed by the professionalism, passion and efficiency with which the Clinic represents its clients.  Residents of Chicago’s Northern suburbs (of which I have been one for almost all of my life) should be very proud of the work done by NSLAC.”  In retirement, Dave plans on spending more time with family (all of whom live in the Chicago area), traveling,  a handful of hobbies and pro bono legal projects.
