Partners for Women and Justice is an absolutely exceptional nonprofit. As a volunteer, I have seen the high quality work of the lawyers, policy counsel, client advocates, and staff. Not only does Partners help low-income victims of domestic violence, but they advocate for policy changes needed to reform the family court system. I have seen the difficulty of being a victim first hand and know that Partners makes it easier for women to access safety.

Partners is an incredible organization with an all-star, dedicated and passionate team. I had the privilege of interning at Partners this summer, during which I was able to take part in its various initiatives both in and out of court. In court, Partners helps and empowers clients to seek protection, and break away from the cycle of violence. Out of court, Partners conducts extensive advocacy work to tackle the systemic challenges faced by victims such as the enforcement of child support and pre-trial safety. Each and every person on the team works relentlessly to protect and support victims and their children, and their experience and expertise are valuable assets to our community. I am very honored to have been part of such an amazing team, and I look forward to seeing the impact of their work resonate throughout New Jersey.

I am extremely grateful that I had the opportunity to be the summer legal intern at Partners for Women and Justice. I had the ability to work with remarkable individuals, who I have come to appreciate so deeply. This experienced team taught me so much about compassion, devotion, and service. My time at Partners has certainly increased my knowledge of and interest in Family Law. Specifically, my time at Partners has strengthened my passion to work with victims of domestic violence. I strive to serve my future clients with as much dedication as Partners serves theirs on a daily basis. In addition, Partners ensures that unrepresented victims have the necessary information to prepare their own case with confidence, increasing their access to justice.

I joined Partners last year to help with the finances and administration of the organization. I am inspired by the extraordinary effort our team puts forth every day to represent victims of domestic violence. They do so much more than provide outstanding legal representation--they provide our clients with hope. So many of our clients didn't know where to turn before they found Partners. Our goal is to give these victims a fresh start, out of harm's way. I am proud to be part of such an incredible organization.

As a long-time volunteer attorney for Partners for Women and Justice, I can attest to the life-changing impact that this organization makes in the lives of victims of domestic violence. When I represented my first Partners’ client in her Final Restraining Order hearing in 2004, I saw the relief that she felt when she realized that she could finally stop living in constant fear. The staff at Partners is caring and professional in all its dealings with clients. Partners’ staff coordinates efficiently with volunteer pro bono attorneys and other resources to bring the full force of the legal system to bear on violence within families.

In my role as speaking coach for Partners’ client speakers, I have had the honor and privilege of working with incredibly strong and brave women. During our sessions, each has expressed immense praise and gratitude for this organization.

Prior to working with Partners’, I did not have any experience working with domestic violence victims. The kindness, compassion, intelligence and training that is required to support, encourage and uplift these clients is at times “superhuman” AND all associates at Partners embody and exhibit those qualities everyday! I am so proud to be associated with this incredible organization.
