Pro Bono Attorneys

The Heart of Our Work

Over 60 percent of unaccompanied children in the United States—tens of thousands of children—do not have lawyers. The tens of thousands of dedicated people and hundreds of legal partners have helped close this gap by becoming KIND Pro Bono Attorneys. Hear what they have to say about their experience working with KIND and their KIND clients.

Inès Zamouri, Meagher Emanuel Laks Goldberg & Liao

KIND spoke with Inès Zamouri, Head of Pro Bono at Meagher Emanuel Laks Goldberg & Liao, LLP, about her dedication to representing unaccompanied children in New Jersey. Inès speaks of how she was drawn to this work because her father was granted political asylum in France, and how that impacted her life for the better.

Recently, Inès represented and helped change the lives of Osmar from Honduras and Adele from Nigeria, and learned of the special needs of working with child clients. She also helped develop the pro bono program at her firm, and now several colleagues are involved in the program!

I quickly realized that developing a personal relationship with the children, beyond the standard attorney-client relationship, is the most essential part of the process.
