Her Justice is a nonprofit organization that takes a ‘pro bono first’ approach to the provision of free legal services to women living in poverty in all five boroughs of New York City.

V&E has worked with Her Justice for more than a decade, representing low-income survivors of domestic violence in connection with contested and uncontested divorces and custody disputes, as well as in securing orders of protection and U visas.
Across the firm, V&E provides an average of 20,000 hours or more of pro bono legal service each year. From senior partners to first-year associates, our lawyers are proud to donate their skills and time to support organizations like Her Justice.
