Rebecca Schaleger: 2021 Recipient of Juvenile Law Advocacy Award

The award recognizes the challenging nature of practicing juvenile dependency and delinquency law, the legal complexity of these cases, the physical and emotional toll of representing parents, children, and youth when the state has intervened in the family, and the extraordinary effort required to capably and compassionately do this work.

The award honors the vital services of juvenile law defense attorneys who have set high practice standards in Oregon’s child welfare and juvenile justice systems through effective and zealous advocacy.
