Below is an excerpt:

Since 2012, DAIS has partnered with Quarles & Brady LLP to represent DAIS clients in getting restraining order injunctions. “As the need for more lawyers grew, Quarles & Brady began engaging other law firms to ensure DAIS clients received legal representation,” Barry explains. Current law firms supporting DAIS clients include: Community Justice, Boardman Clark, Von Briesen & Roper, Hawks Quindel, Merchant Gould, and Quarles & Brady.

The services provided by the pro-bono work fall into two categories — restraining orders and legal clinics, says Barry. DAIS assists clients in filing for a temporary restraining order and then refers the clients to Quarles & Brady where they will be matched with an attorney. The attorney will then help the client strategize and provide representation during the injunction hearing. After the injunction hearing the obligation of the attorney ends.
