Volunteer Spotlight

Volunteer of the Month – March 2024

Sabrina Dolson – The Dickerson Karacsonyi Law Group

Sabrina grew up in Las Vegas.  She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Nevada, Reno in 2009.  She received her Juris Doctorate from the William S. Boyd School of Law in 2013.  During her time in law school, she was a member of Articles Editor for the Nevada Law Journal, and she researched for Jennifer Anderson and Professor Hal Abramson.  During law school, she served as a legal extern for the Office of the General Counsel at the UNLV, and a legal intern for NV Energy.  She also participated in the Partners in Pro Bono program, and was a volunteer for Ya Es Hora! and the Angel Tree Program.

She was admitted to practice law in Nevada in 2013 and she has practiced primarily in the family law since then.  Since 2021, she has served as a member of the Family Law Executive Council.  She has volunteered as a judge for the Truancy Diversion Program, Legal Aid Center’s Ask-A-Lawyer Program and Children’s Attorney Project, NJA’s 2023 1L Mock Trial Competition at the UNLV Boyd School of Law, and UNLV’s OWLS mentorship program.

Sabrina has been with the firm, The Dickerson Karacsonyi Law Group (DKLG), since 2017 and because of their involvement in pro bono, she also became involved once she joined the firm.  She feels fortunate enough to work along with Bob Dickerson who has been an example of prioritizing pro bono work.  Sabrina highlighted that despite Bob’s busy schedule, he always finds the time to take on pro bono cases or volunteer his time to the community.

When asked why she does pro bono work, Sabrina said that she believes it’s a privilege to be able to help those who are in need of guidance and representation.  And as a lawyer in private practice, she feels it’s her responsibility to be proactive in helping others as much as she is able.  She said she particularly loves representing children through the Children’s Attorney Project because there is no better feeling than giving a voice to the vulnerable and innocent children in foster care.

We asked Sabrina to share a memorable story about a case she handled and how she was able to help.  She said that one of the first pro bono cases she worked on was a custody matter in which the minor child was abducted to a different state.  After the child was returned to her client, with the help of law enforcement, she was able to get her client temporary sole legal and sole physical custody, and get the minor child the help they needed.

For her commitment to pro bono, we honor Sabrina Dolson as our March Volunteer of the Month.
