Steve Wolfe ’75

Legal Help for the Poor Steve Wolfe ’75 received his first exposure to legal aid when he worked with prisoners during law school. Today, Wolfe is a senior leadership attorney at Southern Minnesota Regional Legal Services (SMRLS)—where he’s worked for more than 30 years. And while SMRLS handles civil cases instead of criminal, his passion for this area of the law hasn’t wavered since those early days. A wrestler at Saint John’s, Wolfe has fewer courtroom battles in his supervisory role, but he oversees SMRLS’s central office as it helps low-income people in cases involving fair housing, immigration, education, elder rights, medical benefits, family law and much more. “We’re working on cases where it looks like some type of mistake has been made or there’s an honest disagreement about who should prevail in court,” Wolfe says, “and without a lawyer, it’s just not likely to happen for a low-income person.” Now 60, Wolfe still savors lessons he first learned in his early 20s. In legal aid, “You become aware of the common humanity and similarities between people.”
