Broward Lawyers Care, the pro bono project of Legal Aid Service of Broward County, and Coast to Coast Legal Aid of South Florida named Talenfeld Law as their 2017 Law Firm of the Year.
“Talenfeld Law has made significant contributions to legal service providers and their clients in Broward County,” according to the organizations. “Firm founder Howard Talenfeld, one of the nation’s preeminent children’s rights attorneys, established the firm as the first in Florida to focus exclusively on protecting the rights of physically and sexually abused, medically fragile, foster, and other at-risk children. The partners and staff at Talenfeld Law have long been supporters of Children’s Advocacy Programs at LAS and CCLA, such as the Tracey McPharlin Pro Bono Dependency Project.”
The firm has also sponsored the For The Public Good event and the Bridge to Justice breakfast. For more than 25 years, Talenfeld and his team have represented foster care children and the developmentally disabled, who are victims of physical abuse, sexual abuse, and neglect, in damages cases and personal injury claims.
