Sacramento County Superior Court Judge Steven Gevercer is working in conjunction with the Voluntary Legal Services Program to provide pro bono opportunities for attorneys. Judge Gevercer proposed the Probate Court Pro Bono Panel which will allow attorneys to provide services in specific types of probate proceedings. The goal is to assist self-represented litigants through the probate process. Thus far, over 50 attorneys have signed up to volunteer their services to low income litigants.
Since 2004 Judge Gevercer has been a faculty member at Lincoln Law School, teaching Civil Procedure. He was named Lincoln’s Outstanding Professor of the Year in 2011.
