Become a Volunteer Attorney
Lawyers for Children America offers attorneys a unique opportunity to participate in meaningful pro bono work on behalf of abused and neglected children. Volunteers participate in a required multi-disciplinary training session on legal representation for children. Throughout the year, Lawyers for Children America conducts additional seminars and workshops on effective advocacy for children and on such topics as domestic violence, special education and child development. In addition to the training and follow-up seminars and workshop, the Lawyers for Children America program staff provides extensive, on-going support to all volunteer attorneys. This support may take many forms, including case consultation, accompaniment to court hearings and visits with their child, and on-going information and instruction on how to access community resources to address each child’s unique needs.
Volunteer attorneys improve the lives of the children they represent. Call or email a local LFCA office to learn more about the training opportunities in your community.
