Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Berks County has named Barley Snyder attorney Zachary D. Griffith to its board of directors.
CASA works to provide a competent, responsible, and compassionate court-appointed community volunteers to advocate for children who faces abuse, neglect, and/or abandonment, according to its website.
The goal is to restore their well-being and ensure the eminent right to a safe, nurturing, and permanent home.
“The work CASA has done across Berks County has surely changed the lives of children in a positive way,” Griffith said.
“CASA’s mission to speak for the children that have no one to speak for them is something I strongly believe in. I’m excited for the opportunity to help guide the organization in its bright future.”
Griffith joined Barley Snyder in September after graduating from Widener University Delaware Law School, where he was an articles editor for the Widener Law Review. A Berks County native, Griffith’s undergraduate degree is from Albright College.
