Make an Impact through Pro Bono
Family Legal Care’s limited representation model enables us as volunteers to assist a much larger number of individuals and really have the biggest impact. It surprised me how hard it is for unrepresented litigants to be heard—both in terms of actually feeling heard and getting in front of a judge. Every client I work with, I become more and more empathetic to their needs…And I definitely hug my kid harder when I come home at the end of the day.

This program has offered a legal lifeline for Family Court litigants throughout New York State who are homebound or disabled, live in rural areas or have transportation or childcare issues. During the Covid-19 pandemic, this virtual pro bono platform is a critical tool in expanding pro bono resources to assist Family Court litigants statewide.
