About us

Beginning in 1995, Family Law Project (FLP) continues to be the largest pro bono program at the Women's Bar Foundation. The FLP recruits, trains, and mentors attorneys who agree to represent domestic violence victims at restraining order hearings and during their contested family law cases. The FLP also collaborates with legal and social services to advocate for public policy which would benefit low income women. The goals of the FLP are to prevent further abuse, homelessness, loss of child custody, and to decrease repeated court hearings. The FLP is designed to meet the legal needs of the underserved in the legal services community who have already been denied representation by a legal services agency and who might otherwise 'fall through the cracks.' About half of the individuals served by the FLP are indigent, according to federal poverty guidelines; the remaining individuals we serve are low income.

1995, the FLP won the R.O.S.E. Fund's Distinguished Service Award

In 2003, the Women's Bar Foundation received a Supreme Judicial Court Adams Pro Bono Publico Award for distinguished service and outstanding commitment

In 2004, the FLP received the Public Service Award from the National Conference of Women's Bar Associations.
