The Protective Order Pro Bono Project is celebrating its first anniversary of the merger with the Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence. Since the two groups merged in July 2007, the project has served more than 1,500 new clients seeking protective orders and completed more than 2,600 contacts or services for clients. Kerry Hyatt Blomquist, legal director of the project, has reviewed more than 100 cases and represented 70 cases.

The project is divided into two programs: the Protective Order Project, which is an advocacy program for victims of domestic violence; and the Protective Order Pro Bono Project, which provides pro bono legal assistance to indigent victims of domestic violence as they try to obtain or enforce protective orders.

In the last year, the Protective Order Project has grown from one part-time advocate to include two additional full-time advocates.
