KCD thumbnail MCBA raises more than $35,000 for One Place Family Justice Center

“One Place Family Justice Center, the recipient of the charity proceeds, is an important intervention tool in our community’s commitment to servicing victims of domestic violence, and elder and child abuse,” said Beasley Allen Shareholder Kendall Dunson, who is serving as President of MCBA this year. “With the help of our very generous sponsors, we are proud to assist One Place in providing a vital support network.”

One Place is the first Family Justice Center in the state of Alabama and is a “one-stop shop” serving domestic violence, sexual assault, child and exploited elderly victims. This co-located multi-disciplinary approach serves to reduce victim frustration caused by traveling to numerous sites in Montgomery to seek help. At One Place, instead of going building to building and across town to seek services, victims can go door to door and down a hall for the help they need.

More than 20 state and local agencies have partnered with One Place to provide services to victims both on-site and off-site. Several agencies will have staff located at One Place to provide law enforcement assistance, counseling, advocacy, sexual assault examinations, prosecution, civil legal help and referrals.

“The most generous gift of $35,000.00 from the Montgomery County Bar Association and its members such as Beasley Allen Law Firm will make it possible for the Family Justice Center to purchase a state of the art Information Sharing System,” said Steve Searcy, Executive Director of One Place Family Justice Center. “This will enhance the experience of victims by connecting the partners of One Place through a shared case management system and improve our ability to assist victims and their children.”

Lawyers and staff continue to help me

I suffered from an allergic reaction to a common medication causing permanent injury when I was 15 years old. My settlement allows me to take care of myself instead of being on disability. Even after my case was over, the lawyers and staff continue to help me.
