Dear friends, somehow we've made it to fall! The LQ team has been hard at work these last few months giving our clients the best and most responsive remote family law services possible. Attorneys are:
- conducting intake,
- preparing critical paperwork on a variety of matters,
- making both remote and in-person appearances throughout the LASC system, and
- working with partners to find solutions to critical issues affecting our low-income neighbors.
LQ's board has been right with us. From helping us conduct a client resiliency survey to launching a timely remote education series, these amazing volunteers are actively working to promote LQ's mission and strengthen the legal community. In this new Covid-19 environment, access to legal services and the courts is a very real struggle for many low-income persons, including those who are not fluent in English or who have other access challenges. Working with our legal services partners, LevittQuinn is committed to identifying and meaningfully addressing these issues.
We held our first ever digital gala! We are so grateful to the sponsors who supported us, and to the attendees who logged onto YouTube to celebrate with us. We remain hopeful that circumstances will improve in the coming year to allow us to safely gather together at Skirball once again. Save the date - we celebrate our 40th Anniversary on Saturday, September 11.
Stay tuned for our upcoming End of Year Campaign. This year we will raise funds to support our unique and award-winning Adoption Project. Like no other program, LQ provides free and sliding scale private (non-Dependency) adoption legal services to protect vulnerable LA County children from entering the foster care system, and to complete families through step-parent and adult adoption. We welcome your support.
Thank you for all you do! Be well, stay safe. Remember, we are stronger together.
