The attorneys serve as the child's voice before the court and community allowing the children to take an active role in the direction of their case. The Children's Attorneys Project was formed in 1999 with the goal to create a method for abused and neglected children, who are in foster care placement, institutions, or wards of the state, to have a voice in court and to have their own attorney to advocate for their desires.
