EBCLO is off and running with AB12 in 2012. This is the amazing new law that extends foster care services and benefits to emancipating youth beyond the age of 18. Contact your attorney if you have questions.

We also would like to officially welcome three new staff attorneys: Collin Baker, Raquel Lacayo-Valle and Jenny Yu. Collin & Jenny had been with us as temporary staff members in 2011 but we welcome them as permanent staff attorneys in 2012. And Raquel Lacayo-Valle was one of us in our former life as the Alameda County Public Defender’s Dependency Division. Welcome and welcome back!
