Tracey McPharlin Dependency Project

The Tracey McPharlin Pro Bono Dependency Recruitment Initiative

The Tracey McPharlin Pro Bono Dependency Recruitment Initiative is being launched in memory of Tracey McPharlin, a Broward County Bar member and former chair of the Florida Bar Public Interest Law Section who passed away on November 6, 2010. In a career that lasted only 10 years, Tracey did a lifetime of work that improved and will continue to improve the lives of thousands of foster children. Tracey also had a profound and lasting impact on the lives of the many children she served individually through her pro bono work. The goal of this initiative is to recruit, train and support attorneys who will carry on Tracey's work by representing at risk children at all proceedings affecting their safety, permanency, health, and well-being.
