I worked as a legal intern at Her Justice this summer and cannot say enough wonderful things about this organization. It is managed well, the attorneys are amazingly competent, and the amount of clients they are able to provide quality legal assistance is truly impressive. I will continue to support this organization and hopefully work with them and their clients in some capacity when I am an attorney.

Her Justice helps rewrite the narrative so that a child doesn't have to grow up in a violent home, so that a woman has the power to regain her sense of self. Her Justice does this daily, story by story. I am proud to support the organization, its annual stair climb, and its amazing staff that work tirelessly to make new stories possible for women and children in NYC. Her Justice

Her Justice completely changed the trajectory of our lives. Their advocacy and legal expertise made a powerful financial and emotional impact in our lives. My daughter was 3 years old when they stepped in to help us and now she's a Biology major (with a double minor in French & Chinese) at Cornell University. NONE of that would have been possible without the custody and support agreement they secured for her. Thank you Her Justice!
