The Child's Advocate, a project of Legal Aid of North Carolina, provides legal representation to children in highly contentious cases in Wake County Family Court. We are appointed by family court judges to protect the interests of our child clients and ensure their voices are heard.
The Child's Advocate was founded in 2008 as a nonprofit corporation by Sally Scherer, a longtime Wake County lawyer who led the organization as executive director until it became a part of Legal Aid of North Carolina in 2014. Visit the history page to learn more.
