When criminals have more rights than child victims.
On January 2, 2019, Generation Justice will open a Children’s Law Clinic to help children in real time – before they fall through the cracks – by ensuring their best interests are represented, no matter their state, family background, or income. We believe in justice for all, and let’s face it, justice doesn’t happen without a great attorney in your corner.
The Children’s Law Clinic will be comprised of first-rate pro bono attorneys from local communities across the nation.
If you need help in a child dependency matter, or if you are an attorney interested in joining the Gen Justice network, contact us.
