We currently staff 17 attorneys plus paralegals and administrative staff throughout 6 offices in Maryland, including courthouse locations in Baltimore City, Hyattsville, Upper Marlboro, Silver Spring and Montgomery County. To keep pace with the demand, more than 100 pro bono attorneys throughout Maryland have been trained and given technical support to prepare them for providing legal representation to battered women across the state.
