In 2016 alone, Wolfson contributed 175 pro bono hours on behalf of the Bay Area Volunteer Lawyers Program of Bay Area Legal Services. He has completed pro bono cases involving guardianship and guardian advocacy for developmentally disabled young adults, and has taken on additional pro bono cases that were originally difficult to place with attorneys.
