Reason for selection of recipient(s): 

Sylvia joined Utah Legal Services in 1986 and has held several positions at Utah Legal Services. She is currently the paralegal for the pro bono unit. Part of her tasks include recruiting volunteer attorneys statewide and maintaining a large caseload that cannot be handled in-house. She provides a wide range of support for the clients and pro bono attorneys. When she started this position, a few pro bono cases were placed per month, but the program has blossomed and they are placing more than 30 cases per month. She also works with another in-house attorney and follows up with clients in our Senior Citizen division. She is bilingual, which is very helpful in assisting our Spanish-speaking clients.

Sylvia takes pride in working with our clients and maintains a good relationship with clients and our pro- bono attorneys. She has a great passion for her work and enjoys helping people who cannot afford legal assistance.

She is married, has 3 children and 5 grandchildren, and in her free time enjoys reading, fishing, and knitting.
