NHLA staff attorney Mary Krueger is serving as a member of the Task Force on Domestic Violence Cases in the New Hampshire Judicial System. NHLA’s Erin Jasina and 603 Legal Aid’s Pam Dodge are also working on this effort as part of the Task Force Working Group. Mary hopes the group will release specific charges for groups to work on and would like to see a revitalization of work that has been done in the past.
“When I started in 2006, there was a thriving, active, multidisciplinary approach to cases,” she told the NH Bar News. “We used to have better interdisciplinary cooperation between intervention programs, crisis centers, DCYF, lawyers, therapists and supervised visitation centers. We have lost a lot of ground in terms of services available to support families. And I’d like to revitalize these programs.”
