Low Income Taxpayer Clinic-Legal Aid Services of Oregon
DOMINIC PARIS has always been interested in access to justice issues. Dominic spent his 2L summer at Legal Aid Services of San Diego, working primarily with victims of domestic violence. According to Dominic, "While there, I realized how many people needed attorneys...but couldn't afford to pay for one on their own. The clinic was chronically understaffed and we needed all the help we could get."
Dominic currently works for Kell, Alterman & Runstein L.L.P., where his practice focuses on a wide variety of tax related business matters. Dominic began volunteering for LASO's Low Income Taxpayer Clinic in 2014.
We greatly appreciate Dominic's dedication to pro bono work and passion to make a difference in the lives of his low-income clients by advocating for their legal rights. Click HERE to learn more about Dominic!
