Homeless Legal Eagle

By Jim Roope, CNN

(CNN) – Danny Amos practiced personal injury law for 25 years.

“One of the most successful law practices in Los Angeles,” Amos said. “We all made a ton of money.”

Amos had gone from having what he said he thought was, “enough money to last a lifetime,” to living modestly while providing legal services to those with very little means or none at all.

Amos, 53 with a wife and three adult children, said he’d always been a practicing Catholic. He’s a parishioner at St. Paul the Apostle Church in Westwood, California. As he became more active in his church he said, and as his faith grew stronger, he began to think about doing more for others than himself. He joined St. Paul’s homeless outreach program.
