TRLA Attorney Receives Poverty Law Section Impact Award

TRLA attorney Pamela Brown accepts her Impact Award from head of the Poverty Law Section Roger Gette.

Texas RioGrande Legal Aid (TRLA) attorney Pamela Brown was honored as the recipient of the Impact Award during the Texas Poverty Law Section’s annual meeting this April for her work reuniting parents with internationally abducted children and advocating for the rights of victims of domestic violence in child custody disputes.

Brown serves as the head of TRLA’s Bi-National Project on Family Violence, an innovative program that helps parents use the legal system to be reunited with internationally abducted children. Over the last ten years her work has helped more than 370 victims of domestic violence prevent the abduction of their children.

According to her nominators, “Pam’s work is on-going and each year brings another story of families she has reunited across international lines.”

In fact, Brown’s work often takes her throughout the Western hemisphere as she fights for parent’s rights.

Brown is the second TRLA attorney to win an Impact Award in recent years. Last year TRLA attorney Kevin Dietz was honored with the award for his work managing the team of lawyers that fought for parental rights
in Eldorado.
