Program Description

Free service in civil cases for income and asset eligible clients. Private attorneys in Allegany County accept pro bono cases from our organization. Clients must meet our income eligibility guidelines and fall into our case priorities. Once an intake applicant is approved for services, staff seek volunteer attorneys to represent the client with their legal matter. Service priorities for placement of cases are as follows: family law; housing emphasizing distressed homeowners and foreclosure-related tenant problems senior self-determination including advance directives, powers of attorney and deeds; consumer finance; and income maintenance.
