As a member of the Bucks County Bar Association who regularly provides pro bono (volunteer) legal representation to victims of domestic abuse, I have learned first hand about the suffering and vulnerability of these individuals. In Bucks County, victims of domestic abuse of all ages, gender and socio-economic status have powerful allies and champions like our district attorney, Matt Weintraub.
The District Attorney’s Office, together with the brave professionals in law enforcement and the esteemed, knowledgeable, and fair judges of the Bucks County Court of Common Pleas, serve a critical role in ensuring the success and effectiveness of the Protection from Abuse system that safeguards the well-being of a multitude of victims.
I know that it is close to Matt’s heart because he told me about it a few years ago. I didn’t know him then, but I heard him speak at an event and asked about volunteer legal opportunities.
He told me about Protection From Abuse Court and encouraged me to volunteer to represent victims.
