Pro bono support

Partnering with the private bar to support survivors of gender violence

We work with hundreds of pro bono lawyers and law students from law firms, in-house legal departments, and law schools every year.  Pro bono attorneys play a central role in our legal services, and make it possible to serve many more individuals than we would be able to on our own.

Our pro bono program stands apart because of the high level of support we provide to pro bono attorneys.  Every case is supervised by a Sanctuary staff attorney, and includes extensive training, sample materials, and on-going case support and mentorship.

If you would like to discuss ways in which your law firm, in-house legal department, or law school can partner with Sanctuary for Families to provide pro bono legal services to our clients, please contact Nicole Fidler, Pro Bono Supervising Attorney at nfidler@sffny.org.
