In 1996, the Children’s Law Center hired its first staff attorney, Garret Tuller, through a contractual arrangement with Connecticut Legal Services. Under his direction the organization represented over 200 abuse/neglect cases in juvenile court. In 2002, the Children’s Law Center relocated its office from eastern Connecticut to Hartford, to become more accessible to a wider demographic of clients.

We served 2,719 people in 2013:
– 699 impoverished children in our Legal Representation Program
– 1,925 callers to our Children’s Law Line
– 60 families involving 95 children in our Families in Transition Program

Because there are many more children who need advocates, the task ahead is to continually expand our programs and services until all of Connecticut’s communities are served.
