"My summer internship with the Legal Aid Society was an amazing experience. While working under the supervision of an attorney, I was able to advocate on behalf of clients regarding divorce proceedings, orders of protection, and supervised visitation. Survivors of domestic violence may endure years or even decades of physical, emotional, verbal, mental, and financial abuse. Therefore, many of our clients have multiple barriers to securing legal representation. The primary goal of the Domestic Violence Project is to assist clients with terminating abusive relationships via the judicial system. Finally, helping clients secure child support, maintenance, and an equitable distribution of marital assets will hopefully allow clients to become and remain independent. Again, thank you for all of your support and assistance."
