Pegasus was founded in 2002 by two Albuquerque lawyers, Tara Ford and Liz McGrath. Both attorneys had worked as lawyers for children and youth in foster care and had seen the benefits of having a skilled lawyer to advocate for these vulnerable children. Their experience led them to believe that children and youth outside of the foster care system would also benefit from access to legal services. Pegasus was incorporated under New Mexico state law in April of 2002, and received its initial 501(c)(3) determination letter in February of 2003.
