TFC Attorneys Team Up With NYC Council

Legal Coordinator Jonathan & Attorney Erica sitting on the panel

The Family Center is grateful to continue our work with New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark Viverito and her office this month.

On Monday, May 4th, Family Center Staff Attorney Erica Gomez and Legal Services Coordinator Jonathan Riedel traveled to the Children’s Aid Society’s East Harlem Center to give a legal services workshop for local community members.  Erica and Jonathan reviewed forms and common cases in family law, followed by a Q&A session.  Afterwards, they spoke one-on-one with attendees.  At the presentation, topics discussed included child support, guardianship, paternity, public benefits, navigating Family Court, and special issues for grandparents and caregivers.

The Family Center was honored to collaborate with the Speaker’s office and provide legal assistance and education to New York City residents.
