Even though Children’s Law Center is one of the largest nonprofit legal providers in DC, many more children come to us than our staff can help.

That’s why we are honored to partner with hundreds of pro bono lawyers who commit their time, energy and expertise to advocate for DC’s children and families. As a result of their service, thousands more children will grow up with a stable home, good health and a quality education.

Children’s Law Center Executive Director Judith Sandalow with our 2019 Pro Bono Champion, Ropes & Gray LLP, and AmeriHealth Caritas DC Market President Karen Dale.

When someone says ‘premier nonprofit,’ Children’s Law Center is one of the first names that comes to mind. Accenture is proud to partner with an organization that focuses on making authentic and lasting change for children.
