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.

I helped found the Junior Advisory Board for Partners five years ago. Since my involvement, I have been impressed with how well the organization operates. They help many domestic violence victims and their families and they do so in an efficient manner--making every dollar count. I have heard a few of their clients speak at fundraisers about the incredible impact Partners had on their lives. I am very proud to be associated with Partners and will continue to donate to this incredible organization each year.
