Shook Legal Team Tackles Trivia for Kansas Legal Services

Shook, Hardy & Bacon proudly sponsored “Trivia Night” for Kansas Legal Services, a nonprofit legal aid organization. In addition, attorneys and paralegals took part in answering questions about science and law as they competed against KLS teams across the state to help raise funds for the organization.

“We didn’t win but we had a lot of fun,” said Staff Attorney Joy Springfield, who previously practiced at KLS.

The Shook team included Staff Attorney Anna Maria Merritt, Springfield and Paralegal Darren Thomas. Partner Denise Talbert was part of the festivities as well as a number of Kansas judges.

“It was fun,” said Merritt. “The questions were not only academic but also about KLS. They used it as a teaching opportunity.”

KLS, partnering with law firms like Shook, is able to provide legal services to the most vulnerable Kansans.
