Our team at LAF began 2018 doing what it does best: fighting for the poor and vulnerable in Chicago, Cook County, and the State of Illinois.
In particular, our Immigrants and Workers’ Rights group has traveled the state ensuring that migrant workers are treated fairly. Our Consumer group has been advocating on behalf of clients on the wrong end of unconscionable land-sales contracts. Our Housing team on a daily basis has been saving clients from wrongful evictions. Our Public Benefits team has been advocating for disabled clients deprived of Social Security benefits. And one of our Children and Family lawyers was selected by the Illinois State Board of Education to serve on an inquiry team to examine whether Chicago Public Schools is wrongfully depriving special needs students of the services they need. Read more about them, and much more, in this month’s eNewsletter here.
Thank you for your continuing support. We could not do it without you.
