As we slog through polar vortex after polar vortex, we know that our clients are struggling with the weather even more than we are. When the temperature drops down into the single digits and their heat gets turned off, real trouble comes fast. Luckily, LAF has the resources to help. Our attorneys, paralegals, and pro bono volunteers can contact the power company, call out a shady landlord, and get real help to our clients so they can get on with the rest of their lives in safety.
In this month’s eNewsletter, you can read about our pro bono volunteers who helped with nearly 600 cases last year. You can learn about our Community Engagement Unit’s work, our new online access system for clients, and another training at McDermott Will & Emery for legal aid attorneys and paralegals from across the state who work on foreclosure prevention and litigation. You can support all of these efforts by joining us at our Young Professionals Board’s second annual Justice is Served gala on March 7th. Read more about the event below, and get your tickets here. If you can’t join us that night, you can always make a tax-deductible donation to support our work.
