The Legal Project: Our Mission

The Legal Project believes that all people, regardless of income, gender, disability, race, religion, age, sexual orientation or ethnicity should have access to legal services. This belief reflects a deep commitment to fairness and equal justice under the law. Based upon these beliefs, the mission of The Legal Project is to make the law more accessible to those in need, to increase the legal community's involvement in pro bono work; and to serve as a resource on legal issues. We feel a special commitment to women and others who may have difficulty in obtaining legal assistance.

2016 Spring/Summer Appeal

In 2015, your generous support helped The Legal Project serve over 3,620 individuals in the Capital Region who are low to moderate income and in need of free and low cost civil legal services. Our services include finding a solution to extremely challenging situations such as bankruptcy, foreclosure, returning veterans, end of life planning and domestic violence. Many of our clients would have nowhere else to turn for this help.
