FACLC is a bona fide law firm that specializes in family law, with fulltime staff attorneys who go to court with clients. Last year, we helped over one thousand clients and their families; the number is growing and the cases are getting more complex.
In recent years, the type of client we see has been changing. More of our clients have complex legal issues, ranging from dividing pensions to custody issues in which one or both parents have substance abuse or mental health issues.
We expect to add staff to meet this growing need. But because our low fees cover only about 10% of our more than $500,000 annual budget, we rely on the continuing support of foundations, government agencies, the private sector and individuals to maintain our services.
We use our money efficiently, providing effective legal help at a modest cost. These are some examples of what your contribution buys.
