Family Court Pro Bono Advocates
Attorneys who volunteer legal counsel to needy New York families and children through the New York City Family Court Volunteer Attorney Program were recognized at the 2013 Pro Bono Awards Breakfast on Friday at the New York City Bar. The attorneys provide free legal advice to unrepresented Family Court litigants on child support and other family law issues. With the help of the Fund for Modern Courts, Pro Bono Net and the New York City Family Court, the program is expanding to Ontario County and Onondaga County. About 300 volunteers were honored.
