New York City Attorney Joel Walter Honored For Work Protecting Children From Abduction
It was a great honor to obtain a beautiful American Flag that was flown over the United States Capitol in honor of New York based attorney and I CARE Board of Director Joel Walter this past Friday, October 19th, 2012 at the request of Senator Gillibran. Joel Walter is an extraordinary man and model citizen, and in my opinion, Joel Walter is also one of the best family law and child custody attorneys practicing in New York.
For those of you who may not know of Joel's tremendous work protecting children at risk of international parental child abduction, and his work as a board member of the I CARE Foundation, I am pleased to share that under Joel's guidance, the I CARE Foundation has been highly successful in assisting kidnapped children reunite with their targeted parents while also playing a significant role in preventing a large number of children from being taken.
In addition to assisting directly in abduction related cases, Joel's work in creating legislative initiatives that the I CARE Foundation is carefully working on will, when passed, one day prevent a very large number of children from abduction. In addition, his work on creating I CARE's international child abduction case law data base, when complete, will assist all stakeholders in their efforts to protect children.
How good of a lawyer is Joel Walter when it comes to international parental child abduction? Well, let me say this: he was the first person I turned to when I was Chasing The Cyclone.
