 Panel of Cooperating Attorneys

WRO and its clients benefit from the involvement of attorneys who lend their expertise to WRO's fair housing program to advance civil rights and expand housing opportunities for all.

The panel meets quarterly to brainstorm about local housing issues, share knowledge about federal and state law, discuss complaints received by WRO and recommend approaches for complaint resolution by testing, negotiating, mediating, or litigating as appropriate. Seasoned fair housing attorneys offer their support and mentoring skills to other lawyers interested in expanding their knowledge of fair housing law.

If you are an attorney and are interested in contributing to WRO's important work, please call Marlene Zarfes at 914-428-4507, ext. 306.
