Endorsement for Anita Szigeti by Raoul Boulakia

I believe having a representative as committed as you have been to working for justice for the disadvantaged would be helpful in many ways. Having a perspective which balances an understanding of the practical realities of the sole/small-firm practitioner with a concern for the accessibility of justice makes you an excellent choice for bencher. I believe you will both serve the profession and the public well. It’s difficult for sole practitioners to commit the time to serving as benchers, so we tend to be under-represented. I commend you for being willing to make this commitment.
