The Children’s Law Clinic provides free legal representation on behalf of children in dependency actions. We review inquiries on a rolling basis and attempt to respond within 10 business days. The Clinic currently is comprised of two dozen pro bono attorneys in Arizona. We are seeking volunteer attorneys from local communities to facilitate our courtroom work across the nation. We believe every child has worth and deserves equal protection under the law. We envision a day when any child in need can have a great attorney in their corner no matter their state, family background, or income.
