The daughter of immigrants, I was born in New York City and raised in the Bronx. I spent more than 20 years as a personal injury attorney in New York and Pennsylvania.
During what turned out to be the final years of my practice, I became involved with poverty law. I had the privilege of co-founding and leading what was the predecessor of today’s Christian Legal Clinics of Philadelphia (CLCP), a volunteer organization serving the poor.
I blog on abuse-related issues on the website you are currently visiting. I write at greater length on social, political, and religious issues on my other blog A Lawyer’s Prayers http://www.alawyersprayers.com.
I can recommend these child-oriented organizations to you: the Support Center for Child Advocates; Prevent Child Abuse/New York; and the Children’s Aid Society. The International Justice Mission and the Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests (SNAP), also, do valuable work.
Since resources are always scarce, please, consider donating, if you can. Many thanks!
Other than the history with CLCP, I have no affiliation with these organizations and will not benefit monetarily, should you choose to give.
