Partners for Women and Justice recognizes the following attorneys for their pro bono service during 2013. Their generous support made it possible for Partners to help hundreds of low-income and abused women and their children in the past year. These attorneys helped secure final restraining orders, fair orders of spousal/child support, safe visitation/custody arrangements, divorces, and wills and related documents. Many made themselves available to provide court representation in these matters, including through our joint program with Rachel Coalition. Some staffed our divorce clinics; and others represented our clients in appeals. On behalf of Partners’ staff and trustees and most importantly, the women and children who have been helped, we say “thank you” to all of these attorneys and their firms. For more information about pro bono opportunities with Partners, go to or contact Michele Lefkowitz at We are extremely grateful to the New Jersey Law Journal for agreeing to publish this notice.
