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

*****DEADLINE EXTENDED TO FEBRUARY 19TH*****

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.
