About Child Justice

Protecting Children, Providing Support, Promoting Change


Child Justice, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides legal services and advocacy for children’s rights.  Child Justice seeks to ensure that courts protect children in cases of abuse and family violence.  The organization was founded in April 2013 by Eileen King, a children’s rights advocate with more than 20 years of experience fighting for abuse victims and survivors.  Our national headquarters is located in Silver Spring, Maryland and our legal services office is located in Baltimore, Maryland.

Pro bono legal services to protect children “lost in the system” after exposure to family violence, physical/sexual abuse, substance addictions or neglect are provided directly by Child Justice attorneys and from the generosity of numerous partners from corporate law firms and private law practices.

Child Justice predominantly serves families across the state of Maryland and the Washington, DC metropolitan area.  However, the organization has a national footprint, accepting qualified cases outside of the DC area on a limited basis.  In addition to Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia, Child Justice has assisted with cases in Massachusetts, California, New York, New Jersey and Texas and a United States Supreme Court Appeal.
