Salem attorney honored with Guardian Angel award

Posted: Updated:
Each year Children's Trust hands out Golden Halo awards for those in our community who work tirelessly to protect abused children in the Roanoke Valley, but one person is handed the coveted Guardian Angel award.

This year Children's Trust chose Attorney Ellen Weinman as the "Guardian Angel."

Weinman spends her days in juvenile and domestic relations court, serving as a voice for children of abuse.

Beyond the courtroom Weinman has had a hand in a number of victim support programs.

One she most proud of is "Forgotten Victims,” a support group for kids who have witnessed domestic violence.

“Kids are really the easiest people to represent, particularly in abuse and neglect cases, I mean, you don't have to represent the icky ones, the people doing the bad things, the children are always doing good things, they're fun,” she explained.

The Golden Halo Awards were created in 2008 to recognize and honor those who work in child abuse prevention, intervention and advocacy.
