(Phoenix, AZ) November 1, 2019 – Gust Rosenfeld is pleased to announce that Samantha Winter McAlpin was selected as the Florence Immigrant & Refugee Rights Project’s (“FIRRP”) Children’s Program Pro Bono Attorney of the Year. She received the award last week at FIRRP’s annual Pro Bono Appreciation Event.
The FIRRP Children’s Program Pro Bono Attorney of Year award is given to an attorney who has provided significant time, legal representation, and effort to assisting children and teens who are seeking a safe future in the United States.
Samantha said "It's a huge gift to have teenagers trust you with some of the most vulnerable truths about their life, and a huge responsibility to then use those facts to advocate for their safety. The legal work I do for my clients at the end of their journey to the United States pales in comparison to the decades of determination and grit that led them here. I’m honored to be a small part of the Florence Project’s efforts."
Samantha focuses her practice on family estates and trusts. She advises clients in the area of estate planning, including wills, trusts, probate administration, trust administration, guardianships, conservatorships, and taxation. Samantha also litigates contested probate and trust claims involving trustees, personal representatives, beneficiaries, and the exploitation of vulnerable adults.
