Unemployment Insurance Benefits
We are able to refer a limited number of other civil matters to private attorneys on our pro bono panel. Such representation is free of charge, but we can only make the referrals when an appropriate lawyer is available. For this reason, we may maintain a very short waiting list and we may have to ask potential pro bono clients to call us back at a later date. (We get many more requests for divorce, for example, than we have lawyers to whom we can refer those requests).
Our Services Change - Call Our Office
The only way to be sure about whether we can help you is to call our office. Because our funding is limited, we are always seeking new grants to fund our services to low-income people. Sometimes, we get new grants that allow us to offer new services. Sometimes, grants end that once paid for us to do special kinds of legal work.
