A woman arrived at the pro bono legal clinic in a desperate state and suffering from severe disabilities. Thanks to the work of attorneys at LyondellBasell, a Houston-based plastics, chemical and refining company, she is getting the legal help she needs. The attorneys, led by chief legal officer Craig Glidden and pro bono coordinator Monica Karuturi, are helping her set up a special-needs trust to manage her disability benefits.

“It’s one of those unique opportunities that we as corporate lawyers have to contribute to the community’s overall prosperity,” Karuturi said. “Our work is very matter-specific on a day-to-day basis, and pro bono work gives us a way to contribute to broader social issues and interact with people who really need our help. It also grounds us and gives us a sense of what’s really important.”
