KIND Attorney of the Month: Bill Ecenbarger, helped gain status for young girl from Guinea

"Seventeen-year-old Jeannette, from Guinea, struggled to find legal assistance to help her make her case for U.S. protection. She was scared to return to her home country but could not find a lawyer to help her.  She was in despair, trying to accept the fact that without the ability to make her case before a judge, she would have to return to Guinea, where she feared for her safety, and had no one to care for her. Luckily, Jeannette was connected to KIND who helped her find a pro bono attorney - Bill Ecenbarger, who changed Jeannette's life forever. Bill talks below about his experience helping Jeannette as a pro bono attorney at KIND. You can also watch Bill and Jeannette talk about their experiences on KIND's YouTube Channel, www.youtube/supportkind." - KIND, Nov. 30, 2011.
