A Justice Hero - Skip Skinner

A Justice Hero - Skip Skinner

This past October, Arizona and our justice system lost an amazing person – Skip Skinner. The Foundation has honored Skip for several years as a top pro bono attorney, though his work with Southern Arizona Legal Aid, and this summer, he was awarded our top pro bono award – the William E. Morris award. Our hearts are with his family and loved ones. Please take a moment to read a few of the letters that were written on his behalf for the Morris nomination.
