The Project

Amy’s project, a medical legal collaborative, focused on providing access to legal services for vulnerable individuals by partnering with physicians and health care providers to meet the needs of their patients. She worked with our Family Advocates project which is a partnership between The Public Law Center and St. Joseph Health System in Orange County, California. Through the project Amy provided holistic legal services to patients which can range from access to benefits, estate planning, employment issues, landlord tenant disputes, and consumer issues.

Our clients face complex issues and social barriers every day. Providing access to the legal system allows them to focus on maintaining their health and the well-being of their families.
