The Executive Director is responsible for day-to-day operations and reports directly to the board of directors.
Attorneys and support staff are organized into four specialty law units:
(1) Housing/Consumer (to prevent homelessness and to maintain safe and affordable housing) – preventing predatory, unfair consumer practices;
(2) Family (to provide a peaceable means of resolving family conflicts);
(3) Public Benefits (to secure stable state and federal assistance and to secure fair and lawful treatment by government agencies);
(4) Employment/Individual Rights through the Immigration Law Project and Public Guardian Program (that concentrate on protecting individuals and families with special needs).
Three staff attorneys each have over 30 years of collective experience.
In addition, eleven pro bono (volunteer) attorneys assist staff attorneys with client cases and a panel of 15 to 20 private bar attorneys share limited referrals from our office, in conflict situations or overflow cases.
