On October 27, 2022, Access Justice Brooklyn hosted a virtual clinic for Paramount Global and Blank Rome LLP volunteers who generously donated their time in support of our Family Stabilization services in celebration of National Pro Bono Week.
During our Pro Se Uncontested Divorce Clinic, thirty-three attorneys and staff were trained on the uncontested divorce process. Twenty-one Paramount and Blank Rome volunteers later assisted eight of our clients with drafting divorce pleadings and explaining how to commence the divorce action with the court.
Thank you to everyone for their participation last week and a special thank you to event organizers Tricia Mecklembourg, Joe Richburg, Andrew Hughes, and Andrew Wong, co-chairs of the Paramount Global Pro Bono Committee and Kathy Ochroch, Partner and Director of Pro Bono and Community Impact, and Krystal Kane, Pro Bono Attorney, from Blank Rome.
