Barry Pfundt, Gonzaga Law class of 2010, who is a veteran, lists his primary duties as providing civil legal services to low-income people in Spokane and the surrounding six counties. He focuses on areas such as public benefits, housing, and family law. Pfundt, who received his Bachelor’s degree from The Evergreen State College in Washington, also spent time working at the Washington State Governor’s Office.
It was here he found himself directing many people who had legal issues to the Northwest Justice Project. After learning more about the organization, he found himself “inspired by their work and thought that it would be an ideal way to continue the fight that has driven me since leaving the Navy.”
The Gonzaga Loan Repayment Assistance Program, which was created in 2007, awards five outstanding alumni each year with loan repayment assistance. The 2012 recipients are all pursuing careers in public service and reflect Gonzaga’s humanistic, Jesuit, and Catholic mission.
