Rose Tanner, an associate in Thompson Coburn’s St. Louis office, was featured in Missouri Lawyers Media’s Pro Bono Spotlight. In this special section, the publication highlights some of the most significant pro bono attorneys in the state who have given their time and talents to worthy clients and causes.
In her volunteer services, Rose often works with pro bono clients whose living situations are at stake. “They are behind on their rent or there is a problem with the property that they can’t get the landlord to fix,” she said.
While offering her services in landlord/tenant matters, Rose may go to court or reach a settlement agreement that could create a payment plan or locate rental assistance for the client. “I don’t get to represent individuals on a day-to-day basis with the work I do in business litigation, so this really gives me a chance to help people on an individual basis who really need the help,” she said.
In August, Rose received the Hon. John R. Essner Young Lawyer Award from Legal Services of Eastern Missouri in recognition of her commitment to pro bono service.
