Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 24, 2013
Immigration Attorney Heather Poole has been a volunteer attorney with LACBA’s Domestic Violence Project (“Project”) for the past 12 years. The Project consists of volunteer attorneys who donate their time in Los Angeles County Superior Court’s Central and Pasadena courthouses to help domestic violence survivors obtain Temporary Restraining Orders in family court.
Volunteer attorneys prepare the legal forms, explain the process, what to expect in court and how to plan for permanent restraining order hearings. The Project has helped thousands of women and men regain their safety and gain access to the justice system, which otherwise can seem especially intimidating and scary to those who cannot afford an attorney.
“Working with the Project is extremely rewarding work. Attorneys see the justice system work quickly and effectively and help protect those most vulnerable from future harm. There is instant gratification in knowing your actions could help protect a child and change a person’s circumstances to give these survivors a fighting chance at a better life.”
