In observance of Law Day, May 1, 2013, Legal Aid of Arkansas announces that two Clinton attorneys are being recognized for their outstanding volunteerism in the Twentieth Judicial District.
Donna M. Price donated 26 hours of pro bono service to low-income clients during 2012. Her donation has a conservative value of $5,200 to the community.
Price’s firm is Law Office of Donna Price, PLLC and has been practicing law since 2005. She attended the University of Central Arkansas and the University of Tulsa, College of Law.
Kent Tester donated 39.5 hours of pro bono service to low-income clients during 2012. His donation has a conservative value of $7,900 to the community. The award, given each year by Legal Aid of Arkansas, a nonprofit corporation providing free legal services to those who qualify, recognizes outstanding volunteerism and service.
When asked about what motivates her to volunteer for Legal Aid, Price stated, "It’s just the right thing to do."
Price has twice previously received outstanding volunteering awards from Legal Aid of Arkansas.
Tester is a graduate of Arkansas Tech University with a BA in history. He received his Juris Doctorate from the University of Arkansas School of Law in Fayetteville and attended the Naval Justice School in Newport Rhode Island. He is the recipient of three navy Achievement Medals and has served as a Special Justice to the Arkansas Supreme Court. Tester has been practicing since 1989 and opened his office, The Tester Law Firm, in 1995.
"I used to watch trials at the local courthouse growing up in Clinton and was fascinated with court proceedings." Tester said. "Having now tried hundreds of cases, I still find them fascinating. I volunteer my time with Legal Aid of Arkansas because it is a way to give back to the profession that has been such a pleasure to be a part of."
