We are licensed lawyers and legal assistants. We handle non-criminal cases for eligible clients with a focus on elder and poverty law.
To fulfill its mission CNPLS is a private non-profit law firm, providing high quality legal representation to elderly and low-income residents of Jackson County.
Clients include individuals or families living at or below 125 percent of the federal poverty level and/or are over 60, who struggle with problems stemming from poor health care, inadequate education, a lack of food, a scarcity of jobs, domestic violence, and other life-and death survival issues.
Our goal is not to “win” cases, but to bring legal structure to social problems.

CNPLS operates on an application basis, using a variety of questionnaires to determine the most effective way to assist our clients. The attorneys meet on a weekly basis to review applications to determine whom we can assist.
Do not assume that submitting an application means we will handle your case. We are not handling your case unless we tell you in writing that we are.
