The Project

Anya provided appellate representation for low-income New Yorkers and their children seeking to appeal from Family Court to – or defending against an appeal in – the New York Appellate Division. Through such selective appeals, we aim to establish valuable legal precedent and a “culture of appeals” to better access legislative protections. After gaining trial-level experience in Family Court, Anya represented domestic violence victims on appeal, help train other trial and appellate attorneys and establish an appellate counsel electronic brief bank.
