And the LSBA Young Lawyers Division Pro Bono Award goes to . . . Jesse Stewart!
January 18, 2019
Jesse Stewart was honored by the LSBA Young Lawyers Division for his commitment and dedication to providing pro bono services. In awarding the Pro Bono Award to Jesse, the YLD considered Jesse’s dedication to his pro bono matters, the impact of his work, and that his contributions increased access to legal services in Louisiana.
In his cases (both civil and criminal) for indigent clients, Jesse has successfully advocated for expanded special education services, access to mental heath services, access to housing and government benefits, and reduced prison terms.
Jesse takes pride in his pro bono work and treats every client and pro bono matter with the same respect and dedication he brings to all cases.
