Stagg Wabnik Law Group is dedicated to pro bono legal services and volunteers its services to community members in need of legal assistance.
The firm has devoted countless hours to the American Bar Association's Military Pro Bono Project, which accepts case referrals from military attorneys on behalf of junior-enlisted, active-duty military personnel facing civil legal issues.
Pro Bono Services
Kids in Need of Defense (KIND)
In addition, Stagg Wabnik Law Group provides pro bono legal support to Kids in Need of Defense (KIND). KIND is a non-profit organization committed to helping provide legal counsel to refugee and immigrant children who come to the United States without their parents or legal guardian. Many children supported by KIND seek a safe haven from human rights abuses, domestic violence, and trafficking. KIND's headquarters is in Washington, DC, with field offices in Baltimore, Boston, Houston, Los Angeles, Newark, and New York City. Recently, the firm successfully obtained Special Immigrant Juvenile Status for Guatemalan and Honduran children seeking refuge in the United States. The firm ensured that these children were placed in the care of a responsible guardian and that authorities terminated federal removal proceedings against them.
We Encourage Our Attorneys to Help Those in Need
Stagg Wabnik Law Group encourages its attorneys and employees to bring matters to the firm's attention in which we may provide pro bono assistance. Once our firm accepts a pro bono matter, it is treated similarly to all other issues. Accordingly, we allocate our resources and time to zealously represent our pro bono clients to achieve the client's desired outcome.
Services for Military Families
We provide legal help to servicemembers and their families in areas such as employment law, family law, guardianship, and other areas as needed. Our focus is to assist service members, many of whom are stationed out of state or deployed, who encounter legal issues. We have, for example, reunited military members with their children by petitioning for parenting time and have represented military parents in school district disputes.
