Asian American Legal Services Clinic, a program of Asian Human Services (AHS), operates as a monthly pro bono legal clinic managed by DLA Piper & Chicago Volunteer Legal Services.
The Clinic offers compassionate, culturally appropriate quality legal services to the underserved pan-Asian, immigrant, refugee, and low-income communities of Chicago. Legal assistance is free to those individuals living at or near the poverty level. The Clinic has also begun an Access to Justice program that offers legal services at a nominal fee. These areas include immigration law, consumer issues, divorce, child custody, housing, employment, and public assistance. Services are provided either free of cost or a nominal cost (depending on client income). A monthly free legal clinic is offered on the first Wednesday of every month in the evening by volunteer attorneys at AHS' Uptown office.
Clients must provide their own translator.
To be eligible for pro-bono legal services, individuals must live at or below the 125% of the Federal Povery Line. Individuals who live above this income level may qualify for the Access to Justice program where clients may retain an attorney on a sliding scale dependent on income.
You must be logged in to view staff.
