In the modern legalized world, sometimes people simply need help, advice, or education. However, many people often lack the basic means to receive such guidance. Through their kind deeds, volunteers help these people by devoting their time and providing their knowledge and expertise to those that desperately need it. Cathy McKay is one such volunteer.
Apart from the countless other activities, boards, and volunteer work she participates in, Cathy is a member of the New Hampshire Woman’s Bar Association (NHWBA). The NHWBA, in conjunction with the New Hampshire Department of Corrections, developed and runs the Woman to Woman Project. The Project is focused on extending the NHWBA’s goal of “[promoting] the advancement and interests of women in the legal community through leadership, professional interaction, education, and exchange of ideas.” (See the recent New Hampshire Bar News article for more). The goal of the program is twofold to provide general answers to those with questions in the family law field, but lack financial support, and to maintain the equality of services between the men and woman’s prison. Overall, the hope is that these women can learn from their legal troubles and come away with a better understanding of the system of laws and regulations that impacts their lives and their children’s lives.
The office of Parnell, Michels & McKay would like to thank Cathy on her selfless service to her profession, New Hampshire, and its citizens. We here at Parnell, Michels & McKay truly strive to help those out there in need of guidance by untangling what can be a complicated web of legalese. We seek to counsel people through life’s difficult moments with personal empathy and countless years of legal experience.
