Responsive Law is proud to announce that Constandinos "Deno" Himonas has become president of its board of directors.
Himonas was a justice of the Utah Supreme Court from 2015 until earlier this month, when he stepped down to join the law firm of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati. Himonas led the Court’s establishment of a regulatory sandbox for legal service providers, which allows innovative business models for legal service delivery to serve consumers in the state.
According to Himonas: “We are at an inflection point in the law. Millions of consumers lack adequate access to legal advice, meaning they lack access to justice. And it’s now painfully clear that a pro bono approach, while laudable, is just not enough to bridge the justice gap. We need impactful regulatory reform. Responsive Law recognizes the need and is all about making sure that change happens.”
“I’m thrilled that Justice Himonas has agreed to lead our board of directors,” said Tom Gordon, Responsive Law’s executive director. “As a Utah Supreme Court justice, he showed the country that changing how legal services are regulated can make legal help more affordable without sacrificing quality.”
