A celebration of life for Melanie Kushnir was standing room only on Friday, June 3. The speakers included Barbara Buckley, the Executive Director of the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, where Melanie worked; Nevada Supreme Court Justice Michael Douglas;  Josh Reisman, the Regional Chair of the Anti-Defamation League, and colleagues/friends. Melanie’s passion for life and for her work to ensure that financial challenges were not a barrier to justice, resonated through each of the speakers. Her colleague Dan Waite hit the perfect note when he said, “Melanie is gonna’ be upset if she knows we have this many attorneys here and we don’t sign them up for pro bono work.” A justice fellowship fund has been set up in Melanie’s name through the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, and they are still taking volunteers for pro bono work.
