Diana White: My Work Matters

Diana White, LAF’s Executive Director and our fearless leader, is an unstoppable advocate for our work and our clients.  When asked why she works at LAF, she said:

“I work at LAF because it provides comprehensive free legal aid to get the hardest-hit people in our community back on their feet.
LAF’s clients don’t have the money to hire a lawyer, and they can’t get one appointed to represent them because they aren’t facing criminal charges.  Without LAF’s help, they might lose their homes, go hungry, not get the medical treatment they need, or be targeted for physical, financial, or emotional abuse.
Everyone who works at LAF has one goal: providing lasting solutions for problems like these and breaking the grip of poverty.”

As you spend the holidays with your family, be grateful for all you have, and give to those who have less.  Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to LAF so we can continue to be there for the families like yours who need us the most.  Thank you for your support, and thanks Diana for all your work!

    while you all at LAF are feeling “warm and toasty”….. because of LAF, me and my 15yr old daughter have to endure another brutal winter “freezing and homeless”….. my daughter’s mother passed away about 3yrs ago and its really taking a toll on my daughter mentally, physically and academically since we were wrongfully evicted in 2008…. i’m emailing you in hopes of schedulling an appointment to sit and talk with you…. please respond thank you….

    • Hi —
      Unfortunately, we don’t do client intake work via through this blog, as the people who monitor and write for it are not attorneys. But if you call our main phone intake line at 312.341.1070, they should be able to take care of you, or point you towards someone who can. It works best if you call between 8:30 and 9:30am, Monday thru Friday, since the call log fills up pretty quickly for the day.
      You might also try Illinois Legal Aid Online at http://www.illinoislegalaid.org/?_ga=1.252078539.318259178.1409516983.
      Thank you.
      — LAF
