At The Legal Project, we believe that access to legal advice and representation can advance the safety, stability, and independence of the people that we serve and strengthen our communities. Since 1995, we have been advising, advocating for, and representing people who have traditionally had difficulty obtaining civil legal services. Whether you are helping a domestic violence survivor and their children to obtain an order of protection, preventing home foreclosure for a couple whose catastrophic medical bills have decimated their finances, or obtaining a green card for a child who was abused, abandoned, or neglected by their parents, you are making a difference in someone’s life every day that you work at The Legal Project. As a member of our small and eclectic staff, you will benefit from a collegial and collaborative culture where everyone is dedicated to the work we do and always willing to troubleshoot case strategy with you, help with legal research, or talk about how much we are all looking forward to The She Hulk.
