MI Partners with SU and ROG to Provide Pro Bono Family Law Services
McKinley Irvin is proud to share that we have partnered with Seattle University School of Law and non-profit organization, Reclaiming Our Greatness, to bring pro bono family law services to those who are unable to afford representation.
The program will be part of Professor Deirdre Bowen’s Applied Family Law and Applied DVPO Practicum curricula. Under the supervision of McKinley Irvin volunteer attorneys, students will have the opportunity to work with clients from the beginning stage of their legal case through representing them at a court hearing in the areas of dissolution, parenting plans, child support orders, and domestic violence protection orders.
With the high cost associated with family law matters in King County, this program will remove barriers to legal access for those needing help. At the same time, it provides a unique opportunity for law students to gain hands-on family law experience.
“It is an honor to work closely with Seattle University School of Law and to help the future generation of family law attorneys obtain practical experience,” says Law Practice Managing Partner, Laura Sell.
McKinley Irvin attorneys dedicated to this program include Erin Blower, Brent Bohan, Lindsay Camandona, Brian Edwards, Theresa Lorella, Jane Malico, Liz Michelson, Sam Page, Carry Porter, Hillary Roberts-Griffith, Kim Schnuelle and Laura Sell.
