Katie recognized by Pisgah Legal Services

Jim Siemens

Certified Family Law Specialist


Pisgah Legal Services is our local, amazingly productive and effective, legal non-profit organization.  Although there is little time to spare between this busy private practice and the family, putting some time in for people in this community who would not otherwise have access to representation is truly important.  Thanks for the kudos PLS!  Straight from the Fall 2011 Newsletter:

The MAVL Volunteer of the Month of September is Katie Fisher.   Katie practices primarily family law and some estate planning services at Siemens Law Office, P.A.  Prior to working at Siemens Law Office, Katie worked at Pisgah Legal Services for five years on the domestic violence team.

Katie volunteers for the MAVL program because she, “know[s] how great the need for legal services is in our community, having been on the front lines for a good amount of time.  I also know that the numbers of people needing legal assistance continues to rise and staff attorneys have to make tough decisions and turn people down all the time.  If I can help out by applying a skill I have and ensuring that a family can move on with a little more stability, then I’m still helping PLS in its mission to improve this community, which remains important to me out here in the private practice world.”

As a small token of our appreciation for her contributions to the MAVL program, we are giving Katie a $50 gift certificate donated by Laughing Seed Cafe.
