Justice served
Families stabilized
Northeast Ohio strengthened
…and democracy thrives

This is My Legal Aid Story.

 

For more than a century, The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland has helped families in poverty across Northeast Ohio stop civil legal issues from escalating. Legal Aid has provided critically needed counsel at the moment civil legal issues threaten health, shelter, safety, or economic security.

Without Legal Aid’s help…

  • an eviction notice can lead to a family’s homelessness
  • illegal school policies can exclude a child from learning
  • domestic violence threatens a family’s safety
  • unlawful finance terms can pin a couple under a mountain of debt
  • auto repossession can prevent a dedicated employee from getting to work

Equal justice under the law is a right, not a privilege. However, legal representation in civil cases is NOT guaranteed by the United States Constitution. The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland helps families navigate the civil justice system, and that leads to positive outcomes across Northeast Ohio… and democracy thrives.

I have become very familiar with all of the amazing things they do and people they help, and have made sure that my mid-sized intellectual property law firm, does our part by sponsoring Legal Aid's events.
