HIGHLAND PARK-HIGHWOOD LEGAL AID CLINIC

PROVIDING ACCESS TO JUSTICE FOR THOSE IN NEED. We offer our services to residents of Highland Park or Highwood who must be qualified by income level. In general, the Clinic will work with residents who are at or below 250% of the Federal Poverty Level, about $60,000 for a family of four. We work with lawfully admitted immigrants to the U.S. and with those who entered without inspection and are therefore undocumented.

Highland Park-Highwood Legal Aid Clinic works with volunteer attorneys who are licensed to practice law in Illinois. They have volunteered to take cases which we refer to them and not charge the client a fee. If we match the client to an attorney, the attorney takes over management of the legal issue. We provide support to the assigned attorney and will stay with the case until completion, whether it is resolved favorably or not.
