My husband and I have been supporters of Partners for Women and Justice since we learned of the organization several years ago. Partners provides assistance to victims of domestic abuse who often have no place else to turn to escape the brutal and inhuman treatment to which they are being subjected. Partners has literally saved the lives of countless women who have had the strength to break free of their emotional and often physical bondage with the help of the incredibly dedicated and talented staff and volunteers at Partners. By providing free legal services to victims of domestic abuse, Partners provides the opportunity for a new start to women and children who might otherwise fall between the cracks of our legal system.
I am attorney that has been doing pro bono work for Partners for Women and Justice for nearly seven years. Partners for Women and Justice does the invaluable service of helping women escape abusive relationships and obtain the protection they so badly need from the court system. These women would not have a voice or the support they need if it were not for Partners for Women and Justice. This organization has helped so many women and in turn, so many children, and I feel lucky to have the opportunity to help serve this organization and mission.
The staff and attorneys at Partners are an incredible resource to all of the attorneys that do work for this organization. They are patient and thorough and make themselves available around the clock for questions and concerns. They provide assistance on how to navigate the family court system in Essex and Hudson counties and give advice on cases based on years of experience. The passion that everyone working at Partners shares for their mission is inspiring and contageous. I truly love working with this organization and these individuals.
In addition to serving an incredible cause and organization, Partners provides young attorneys with the chance to get experience on their feet in the court room. I truly cannot say enough great things about Partners and constantly recommend it to fellow attorneys considering pro bono opportunities.
