Two Lawyers Work to Give Ex-offenders a New Start

January 7, 2014
The Oregon State Bar Bulletin published the below article, authored by Cliff Collins, in their January 2014 issue. The article is about the CLiF project and its two founding lawyers, Tonkon Torp attorneys Gwen Griffith and Vicki Ballou. Griffith and Ballou banded together in 2011 to create the CLiF Project, which stands for Changing Lives Forever. They collaborated with the Portland nonprofit public interest law firm Youth, Rights & Justice to sponsor a pro bono program that recruits lawyers from Tonkon Torp and other law firms in Portland and around the state.
