We are so excited to be offering free legal help in neighborhood-based clinics again. In the coming weeks we are hosting several clinics on the west side of Cleveland, and brief advice clinics in Oberlin, Ashtabula, and Lorain. On May 7 our Naturalization Clinic will provide specialty advice for individuals needing help with applying for U.S. citizenship.
