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.
We are divided into four law units, each supervised by a licensed staff attorney:
- Housing/Consumer Law – Works to prevent homelessness and to maintain safe and affordable housing; to protect consumers from unlawful trade practice and predatory lending practices
- Family Law – Provides peaceable means of resolving conflict, especially domestic violence, in families with minor children
- Income Maintenance – Works to secure stable state and federal assistance and to secure fair and lawful treatment by government agencies
- Individual Rights
- Immigration Law Project assists with citizenship, status adjustment, farmworker rights, protects survivors of domestic violence, and crime with VAWA, T-Visa, and U-Visa self-petitions
- Jackson County Public Guardian Program concentrates on protecting individuals and families with special needs
- Protecting our Veterans provides access to employment helping with drivers license reinstatement and expungements.
