Legal Assistance To Our Community
We are so happy for our community that our good friend, Mr. Robert Eckels, has agreed to join the International Trade Center as our legal advisor to help our local community.
I met Mr. Eckels way back in his state representative days and later thereafter he became Harris County Judge and served from January 1995 until March 2007. Under his leadership there were many infrastructure improvements carried out in our county, including the beltway construction. Currently he is the president of Texas Central Rail (https://www.hsrail.org/texas), a group engaged in the construction of a bullet train service between Houston and Dallas.
In the last several years, Judge Eckels has always supported our community events. His district included Asian town when he served as state representative.
Today our community is facing more challenges than ever before. This coronavirus pandemic has really changed our lives, especially in the Asian and immigrant community. A lot of those living there are newcomers. When it comes to legal protection, they really need more help.
The International Trade Center (ITC) has been a 501C3 organization for over 15 years. We have served more than 10,000 small businesses in Houston and the surrounding area. We have provided mostly business services in the past, and now we will offer legal services at a time when it is really needed in the community.
I am very happy that many of my old friends including Mr. Ben Hall and Judge Eckels have agreed to help our community. We also will be working with more legal experts who will join us in the very near future.
At such a very critical time, people helping each other is our American spirit in action.
