  • John Howard Crouch

    Ann "wrote the book" on representing children, in every sense of that phrase. She has a great combination of high ideals, tough-minded practicality, and compassion. I know her from her work as a pioneer of child representation, primarily from working with her on the ABA Standards that became a Uniform Act on that subject, and from the ABA child custody committee and other ABA projects.
