-Pro Bono Representation

DV LEAP regularly seeks pro bono assistance for its appellate cases.  If you are an attorney or law firm interested in working on an appellate domestic violence case, please email us at and we will include you on our pro bono network list.  Please tell us if you have experience in (i) domestic violence work (ii) appellate work, and/or (iii) custody litigation.


DV LEAP works with many volunteer lawyers on its pro bono cases; we also have benefited from the generous assistance of individuals with other types of expertise, including graphic design and public relations.   At this time we are especially interested in volunteers with backgrounds in marketing, public relations, computers, and systems management.  If you are interested, please e-mail us at

-Social Networking

Share DV LEAP with your social networks. And if you hear of a new online contest or other way to spread the word, let us know—we’re looking for new ways to get the word out about how DV LEAP’s work helps thousands of survivors throughout the U.S.
