Many people respect Pam Bucy for her legal experience as a prosecutor and as chief deputy attorney general, but fewer know about Pam’s behind-the-scenes work representing low-income people. For 15 years — ever since she became a lawyer — Pam has had pro bono clients. She has represented these people (typically in divorce and child custody cases) without pay and without publicity.
I became aware of this while working as information specialist at the State Bar of Montana, where Pam volunteered as co-chair of the Equal Justice Task Force. I was impressed with this capable yet modest woman, who not only took on legal cases personally but also addressed access-to-justice issues statewide.
Pam is someone who is not too good for or too busy for people in need. This is only one of many qualities that will make her a great attorney general for Montana. Please vote for Pam Bucy.
