In celebration of Pro Bono Month, McGuireWoods’ Charlotte office partnered
with U.S. Bank and the NC Pro Bono Resource Center on Oct. 7, 2020, for CLE
training and a virtual driver’s license restoration clinic.
Twenty-two volunteers from McGuireWoods and U.S. Bank worked in teams via
Zoom and in person to screen records and advise dozens of low-income
clients whose driver’s licenses were suspended due to their inability to
pay traffic fines and fees. For many, lack of a driver’s license precludes
or limits work and educational opportunities. Regaining that license can
reopen doors and change people’s lives.
