Pro Bono

Part of our professional responsibility as advocates is to assist those who are unable to afford advice or representation. The goal is to promote human rights and social justice. Although the need for legal services among the poor- including homeless children and adults, unemployed or low-wage workers, prisoners, or senior citizens- is overwhelming, only a small percentage have access to legal services. We can help a few poor citizens with legal representation.
