The Project

I recruit law students to work on projects that aid low-income populations. I encourage private firms to do more pro bono work. I provide free legal services for elders and assist with legal services for previously incarcerated individuals who have been discriminated against as they seek to return to society. I help people get heat, food and funds on a regular basis.
