Now in its 8th year, Story by Story is an annual fundraiser and stair climb benefiting the critical work that Her Justice does every day. By climbing, you are helping to support and empower the women that we work with every day to gain access to much-needed legal services.
Her Justice trains and mentors volunteer lawyers from New York City’s law firms and companies to stand side-by-side with women in New York City.
Thanks to the power of our ‘pro bono first’ model, in 2016 our 11 Her Justice staff attorneys trained and mentored 1,490 volunteer lawyers, paralegals and law students who provided 3,198 women living in poverty in NYC with free legal help. The hours so generously donated by volunteer attorneys amounted to a value of more than $34 million.
For over 24 years, Her Justice has ensured that women receive critical legal assistance that helps them achieve safety, self-sufficiency and stability. We offer a complete range of legal services at no cost to our clients – information, advice, preparatory services and full court representation – in family, divorce and immigration matters that address the vital needs of New York City women and children living in poverty, especially those who have suffered domestic violence and immigrants isolated by language and culture.
