Bronx organization helps abused women who can't afford legal services

One Bronx organization is dedicated to helping women trapped in abusive situations.

A lawyer who wanted to give back to the community founded the organization In Motion 10 years ago. In Motion provides free services in the areas of immigration, child support and divorce.

Staff attorney Marguerite Cordice says the organization helps put the power back into the hands of many women. Any woman in need of legal services can walk right into the office and sit down with a pro-bono attorney.

Services are made possible through donations from law firms. Last year, In Motion helped 1,500 Bronx women get back on their feet.
