A group of 31 volunteers spearheaded by Lynn, Pinker Cox & Hurst partner Michael Hurst spent time delivering Thanksgiving dinners to 20 Dallas-area families in need, who are clients of the Dallas Volunteer Attorney Program, a pro bono joint venture between the Dallas Bar Association and Legal Aid of North West Texas.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of turkey deliveries for Hurst, who began doing so in 2003 to set a good example of gratitude and public service for his children. It is the 14th year for a network of volunteers, which often includes past DBA presidents and other officers, to join in on the meal delivery. In addition to Hurst, other figures of the Dallas Bar involved in this year’s volunteer efforts include Aaron Tobin of Condon Tobin, Rob Crain of Crain Brogdon, Dan Kelly of Vistra Corp., Hilda Galvan of Jones Day and Julie Ungerman of Toyota Legal One.
Instrumental to the effort were Hurst’s legal assistant, Gina Flores, and DVAP’s Michelle Alden and Whitney Breheny.
