Attorneys Autumn Hancock and Rachel Bennett recently attended the Lawyers for Young Adults Pro Bono Project Continuing Legal Education Seminar. The seminar provided instruction and guidance on assisting young adults who are aging out of the foster care system. These young folks are often entitled to living assistance, payment for college courses, and other opportunities but it can be tricky to navigate the systems that provide these benefits.
Hancock Law Firm is committed to providing pro bono services to members of our community who need but cannot afford legal representation. The under-represented youth aging out of the Foster Care System are particularly important to both Autumn and Rachel because each attorney has a personal connection to this group. Autumn has worked with at-risk youth in the past and Rachel’s father was a child in Foster Care in his youth.
The Firm is excited to engage in assisting young people to get a great start on adulthood and ensure that they receive all benefits that they are entitled to. Stay tuned as we look forward to sharing our exciting stories in this field of law!
