Pasadena divorce and family law attorney, Casey J. Marticorena, Esq. has been selected by the Honorable Judge Amy Pellman of the Los Angeles Superior Court to serve as an attorney coordinator for Adoption Day 2009. On April 17, 2009, at the Edelman Children's Courthouse, dozens of foster children will realize their dream of being adopted by a loving family.
Ms. Marticorena will act as a coordinator and liaison between Pro Bono attorneys, Southwestern University School of Law students and Public Counsel. This collaboration will facilitate the union between adoptive parents and children who are in the dependency court system due to abuse, neglect, or abandonment.
Ms. Marticorena and her co-coordinator Joanna Sanchez, Esq., are responsible for managing the progress of each adoption case in order to assure timely filing of all paperwork and to assure that each adoptive family is receiving the proper benefits.
Teams of Pro Bono attorneys and Southwestern law students are assigned to each adoptive family. On Adoption Day, all of the families and children will participate in a hearing to formalize the adoption.
According to Ms. Marticorena, "It has been a very rewarding experience which will undoubtedly resonate with me as a family law practitioner. I am honored to have accepted the challenge."
