Next FOT: How lawyers can help: join the Thomas More Society in Des Moines

This week our guest is Matt Heffron of the Thomas More Society, Omaha branch.  He will be in town Wednesday to promote the establishment of a Des Moines branch and will be discussing those efforts with Deacon Mike and Gina Noll Tuesday on Faith On Trial.  The Thomas More Society is a not-for-profit, national public interest law firm dedicated to restoring respect in law for life, family, and religious liberty. Based in Chicago, the Thomas More Society defends and fosters support for these causes by providing high quality pro bono legal services from local trial courts all the way to the United States Supreme Court.

He successfully tried numerous jury trials in federal court involving multiple jurisdictions and multiple parties.
