Review for Alliance for Childrens Rights, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteer as a pro bono attorney with the Alliance for Children's Rights, and the work has been amazing. The people at the Alliance are incredibly supportive, answering questions quickly and providing advice and suggestions when needed. It's been wonderful having direct client contact with those in need of pro bono legal services, who have all been very appreciative of the help we can provide.

I have mainly volunteered to assist with guardianships through the Alliance. The cases can be heartbreaking, with absentee parents and children who are living with other family members who need to obtain the correct paperwork to be able to obtain benefits and sign legal documents on behalf of the children. It's been amazing to be able to help these families in filing the paperwork and attending the legal hearings needed to obtain the guardianship orders.

Helping these families has been the highlight of my pro bono work as an attorney.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

appearing with families to obtain guardianship orders

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

hope that they receive additional funding to keep up the great work!
