- Organization: Legal Aid Society of Hawaii: Partnership in Pro Bono Project
This quarter, the Pro Bono Project recognizes Shyla P.Y. Cockett of Starn O’Toole Marcus & Fisher for her energetic commitment to assist others through pro bono service. Ms. Cockett concentrates her practice in the areas of commercial, real estate and construction litigation and through the Partnership in Pro Bono Project she recently completed a guardianship. With Ms. Cockett’s assistance, the client obtained guardianship over her incapacitated son, alleviating a tremendous amount of stress for which the client was extremely grateful. From beginning to end, Ms. Cockett dedicated an exemplary amount of expertise and professionalism to her pro bono case. We are very pleased to have her as part of our valued team of pro bono attorneys.
“I am so thankful for all those who
have helped me in my life. It brings
me great joy to know that I now have
the opportunity and ability to do the
same for others.”
