Childlaw Services, Inc.
100% Children's Law
Does Not Use Volunteer Attorneys
Childlaw Services, Inc. began in 2000 as a separate non-profit organization. The mission of ChildLaw Services, Inc. is to advocate for the well-being of children by giving them a stronger voice through legal representation, policy development, and coordinated planning. Legal services are provided to children in abuse and neglect cases; child custody cases; child victims of crime (domestic violence, sexual abuse, etc); adoption (contested and uncontested); juvenile delinquency; and truancy cases.
ChildLaw Services also houses the Teen Court, a legally binding alternative system of justice that offers first-time offenders an opportunity to make restitution for their offenses through community service, educational classes, and jury service. Defense and prosecuting attorneys and the jury are comprised of teenagers.
