KCMBF’s Military Matters is proud to shine the March Pro Bono Spotlight on Nick Hinrichs of Hinrichs & Scott Law Firm, LLC.
Nick initially heard about KCMBF’s Military Matters program from co-workers, and he found it intriguing, so he thought he might get involved. Nick’s grandfather was in the military and served during the Korean War.
Nick explained that he has had a good experience volunteering for Military Matters so far. “It's been interesting helping veterans out with a variety of random cases” he said, “I’ve handled cases across the board. Ranging from DUI, driver licenses issues, expungements, and domestic violence cases.”
In college, Nick worked with a group of trial attorneys, which inspired him to go to law school. “I enjoyed watching them prepare for their big cases. The excitement leading up to the trial had me hooked” he explained. Nick’s flexible work schedule as well as working for himself, allows for time to volunteer doing pro bono work.
Nick’s father works in the construction industry and his mother is a nurse. He has a younger brother who also works construction with his father. In his free time he enjoys movies.
When asked what advice he has for other attorneys who are considering joining the program to represent veterans seeking pro bono legal services he said “It is worth it. They are typically people who are down on their luck and need a little help.”
Thank you, Nick, for your dedication to KCMBF’s Military Matters and to giving back!
