The Issue: Expense of Legal Services
There are few options for low-cost legal services in the Baltimore area. The University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law and Civil Justice, Inc. charges $10 for 30-minute sessions of legal advice through its JustAdvice program. However, many of its clients still cannot afford this fee.
The Campaign: Providing Free Legal Session for Locals
If this Grassroots campaign raises $300, Then JustAdvice can provide 30 minutes of legal advice for 30 local individuals who could not otherwise afford it. Each additional $10 raised will fund 30 minutes of legal advice for another individual. The organization holds brief advice sessions in the Lexington Market once per week, where clients can learn where they stand in a range of legal arenas, such as family disputes, criminal law, insurance, and unemployment.
You can follow the progress of this and other Grassroots campaigns at the Groupon Grassroots website.
