Cahill Pro Bono: Sanctuary for Families

Partner Advisor: Joel Kurtzberg

Sanctuary for Families is a New York City-based organization that provides comprehensive services to nearly 17,000 victims of gender violence and their children each year.  Cahill attorneys provide pro bono representation to Sanctuary’s clients in a variety of legal matters, including contested and uncontested divorce, orders of protection, child custody, and other relief.

Cahill’s work with Sanctuary for Families has a long international reach‎.  A majority of Sanctuary’s clients are immigrants, and our attorneys have handled international custody cases involving over a dozen countries as well as other matters involving international and immigration law.

Cahill attorneys provide high quality, culturally sensitive legal representation that helps empower our clients to permanently leave abuse and rebuild their lives.  Recently, several Cahill associates have been recognized by Sanctuary for going “above and beyond” in their work on these matters.

  • Your work gave me and my son our new life . . . I don’t have to be afraid anymore.
