“Mr. Spencer Golden was first introduced to Legal Services of Greater Miami, Inc. (Legal Services) as a Fellow in our Low Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) while pursuing his LL.M. in Taxation at the University of Miami School of Law. During that time, he demonstrated his commitment to public service by driving to meet with clients that were unable to make it to the office, conducting community education events on weekends and recruiting a volunteer CPA to prepare tax returns that were beyond the scope of IRS VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) sites. Spencer also assisted the LITC with drafting an article on President Trump’s proposed tax reform that was published in the Summer 2017 MIE Journal (Management Innovation Excellence for Legal Aid).
Spencer returned to Legal Services in the Summer/Fall of 2017 to volunteer in our LITC while we were short-staffed. He continued to do the weekend community education events and began volunteering for our evening Divorce Clinic. Spencer continues to travel over one hour each way on weekends as an LITC ambassador facilitating community education events.
