We are thrilled that pro bono attorney Maryam Casbarro who represents clients referred from Legal Aid was featured in this year’s lead DC Pro Bono Week Profile. In the profile, Maryam shares what has inspired her to work with survivors of domestic violence and how pro bono work has helped her hone her professional skills and make her a better lawyer.
If you are interested in hearing directly from Maryam about her experiences representing survivors of domestic violence, we encourage you to attend Pro Bono Goes Local, a DC Pro Bono Week kick-off breakfast celebration this Wednesday, October 16, from 8:30-9:30 a.m., at Crowell & Moring, 1001 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW. Maryam is one of four pro bono attorneys who will be featured at this special event.
And if you want to hear more about how you can get involved, please join us for a Lunch and Learn: Helping Families Secure Safety and Stability, this Thursday, October 17, from 12-1:30 p.m. Bring your "brown bag" lunch and join us here at Legal Aid, 1331 H Street, NW, to learn from our family law experts about representing survivors of domestic violence who are seeking long-term stability for themselves and their children through permanent custody orders.
We hope to see you at one or both of these upcoming events!
