Deadline Extended-Lawyers Needed to Represent Children and Parents in State Intervention Cases–Great Need in Springfield–


The Children and Family Law Division (CAFL) of the Committee for Public Counsel Services is seeking qualified attorneys to represent children and indigent parents in care and protection/termination of parental rights and child requiring assistance cases in the Juvenile Court.  There is a significant shortage of CAFL lawyers in western Massachusetts.  The need is most critical in the Springfield Juvenile Court.  As a result, we are particularly interested in applicants who are able to accept CAFL appointments in Springfield as soon as possible after successfully completing the certification training.
