Hiring Organization: Since 1993, inMotion has helped thousands of women free themselves from abusive relationships, stay in their homes and win the financial support to which they—and their children— are legally entitled. Our mission is to make a real and lasting difference in the lives of women—low-income, under-served, and abused—by offering them legal services designed to foster equal access to justice and an empowered approach to life. We fulfill our mission by providing free, quality services, primarily in the areas of matrimonial, family and immigration law, in a way that acknowledges mutual respect, encourages personal growth, and nurtures individual and collective strength. We also work to promote policies that make our society more responsive to the legal issues confronting the women we serve. This position will be based in our Manhattan office, but will require weekly work in one of our offices in the Brooklyn, Bronx or Queens Family Justice Centers.
