Eve Lopez was profiled as a SuperLawyers Rising Star in the Harriet Buhai Center for Family Law newsletter.


Ms. Lopez holds the Center’s Pro Per program in high esteem. She recalls speaking with a Center client at an event and noting the woman’s positive outlook after getting the Center’s help. “The Center clients have a higher incidence of awakening about their options than other litigants without help,” she explains.

Ms. Lopez determined that it is “not only the duty but the responsibility of family law attorneys to make meaningful contributions both in donating time and money” to places such as the Center.
