To the greatest extent possible, the Attorney for Children staff share job responsibilities, although individual staff specialize in certain areas. Unless you know with whom you want to speak it is best to call the general number (585) 530-3170 to be connected with the person best able to answer your question. All staff are happy to assist attorneys for children and the public in any way we can.
