Whitney Untiedt Discusses the Importance of Pro Bono Service with Orlando Business Journal
May 9, 2017
The Orlando Business Journal recognized Akerman as the top pro bono law firm in Central Florida and spoke with Whitney Untiedt for her perspective as Akerman's Director of Pro Bono Initiatives. In the article titled, "Whitney Untiedt on taking up the cause of the defenseless, oppressed," Untiedt described one of her most satisfying pro bono cases and why Akerman is dedicated to community causes.

Untiedt was quoted, "Pro bono is a way for us to give back to the Orlando community, using our legal skills and training to make our city a better, safer home for every child. The oath of admission to The Florida Bar requires every lawyer to pledge not to reject 'the cause of the defenseless or oppressed,' and we take the spirit of that oath to heart. We are motivated to stand up on behalf of those who cannot stand up for themselves."
