Brad Cashio, J.D. ’01, was profiled for NOLA.com’s Everyday Heroes series. The piece highlighted Cashio’s pro-bono work and the Bible classes with inmates in the Orleans Justice Center he has led for the past 13 years.
"The inmates are ready to talk when we go in for Bible study because there's so much self-evaluation while they're in jail. They're thinking about their lives and the things that went right and the things that went wrong. They're not ready to accept just anything you say and that's good. You don't want someone to tell you something just so you can believe it and have some hope. That would be terrible. Truth is what we all want and what they want."
Last year, Cashio was named in Gambit Weekly’s 40 Under 40, which lauded his mentoring of young lawyers about ethics in personal injury law, and his pro bono and discounted legal services for low-income individuals, nonprofit organizations, small businesses, and churches.
