Pro Bono Volunteer of the Month-June 2019

Trevor Creel of Willick Law Group

Trevor is a native of Las Vegas. He received his B.A. in Political Science from UNLV and his J.D. from the William S. Boyd School of Law. While in law school, Trevor practiced as a student attorney with the Thomas and Mack Legal Clinic, externed at the eighth Judicial District Court (Family Division), and taught a weekly family law class to members of the Las Vegas community. Trevor currently practices family law with the Willick Law Group which is where he first became involved with pro bono services through the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada.

Trevor has volunteered for the Family Law Ask-A-Lawyer Program, the Children’s Attorneys Project and has taken pro bono family law matters. When we asked Trevor why he does pro bono, he said “I believe that we, as attorneys, both ethically and morally, have a duty to support those who are less fortunate in our community.  In addition, the gratification that comes from helping those in need is very rewarding.”

We asked Trevor to share a story about his most memorable client. “I had a client, a single mother with two children, who worked hard, supported her children, and received no assistance, financial or otherwise, from their father.  She never complained, never insulted her ex, she was very matter of fact.  In attempting to provide the best life for her children, she wanted to ensure that her son could travel out of country for a class trip, unfortunately, she needed dad’s cooperation.  When he wasn’t there to give it, we were able to get the Court to grant her authorization to obtain a passport and she was incredibly grateful for that service because she knew how important this was for her son.  Little things like that are memorable to me.”

For his commitment to pro bono, we honor Trevor Creel as our June Volunteer of the Month.
