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.

LATEST NEWS

We are pleased to announce that attorney Rebecca M. R. Weininger has been named Director of Domestic Violence Practice at the Highland Park-Highwood Legal Aid Clinic. The position is funded in part by a generous grant from the Healthcare Foundation of Highland Park.

Weininger has been a litigator in federal and state trial and appellate courts for almost 20 years. During her legal career, she has represented survivors of domestic violence including undocumented immigrants and political asylum seekers from Central America. She has also served as a law clerk for the Honorable Robert L. Eastaugh of the Alaskan Supreme Court. Weininger is active in the local and greater community and is the Chair of the Education Subcommittee for the Anti-Defamation League and sits on several committees for North Shore School District 112 and her synagogue. She graduated cum laude from Northwestern University School of Law and is a graduate of Vassar College with a B.A. in English and Hispanic Studies.

Wonderful! Congratulations! Thank you Rebecca and HP clinic for all you do!!

Valentine’s Day is a day that is reserved for love and sharing that love with that special person. It’s also the day of Onebillionrising. This is a worldwide movement to end all forms of violence against women, recognizing that one in three women in the world will be beaten or raped during her lifetime, and usually by someone she knows. If you or someone you know needs help, the Highland Park-Highwood Legal Aid Clinic is here to provide confidential legal assistance. #NoMoreDomesticViolence
