People of modest means should not need to face the legal system alone!
Many people in the District of Columbia earn too much to qualify for free legal services from a pro bono lawyer or nonprofit legal aid provider, but too little to afford to pay the amount that most lawyers charge for legal services.
People whose incomes fall between 200-400% of the federal poverty guidelines often have no good options for obtaining legal assistance.
We seek to fill that justice gap.
