Senior Partners for Justice - Life After the Bench

As I approached mandatory retirement after serving 25 years on the Probate and Family Court bench, I noticed two trends that appeared to be unrelated. One was the increasing number of pro se litigants attempting to navigate through the family court system, and the other was an increasing number of senior lawyers who had retired but who were still looking to remain active in the legal profession. From these disparate groups, the idea for Senior Partners for Justice was born. The mission of Senior Partners is to offer legal counsel to indigent litigants before the Probate and Family Court while providing new challenges for lawyers who are available to serve.
