Last November, Daniel Sandoval (University of Washington, HCDE - Alum.) and Miguel Willis (Seattle University, School of Law - 2L) partnered with community organizations, such as the King County Bar Association and Columbia Legal Services, as well as lawyers and law faculty with deep expertise on access to justice issues, to ensure that solutions developed met real needs that the poor experience.
