89% of CLS’s resources are expended for the direct delivery of legal services
“A trusting widow, swindled by a smooth-talking loan shark, suddenly faces eviction from the home she’s owned for decades. An injured veteran caught in bureaucratic red tape is denied services he needs and has earned. A fearful mother stays in an abusive relationship because the alternatives seem worse. These disturbing situations are all-too common in our great country. Without appropriate legal expertise, many of them have unjust endings.”
– John G. Levin, Chairman of Legal Services Corporation Board of Directors.
