Law organization helping people with legal struggles for free
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - Good news, there is help for those in need during the pandemic facing legal trouble.
The Madison County Volunteer Lawyers Program is offering services pro bono for low income Madison County Residents. They strongly believe this is needed right now during the pandemic.
Group president Attorney Raven Perry-Beach said although they only work on civil matters and help with expungements, they’re still making a difference one case at a time.
Perry-Beach said they just helped a woman get a charge off her record that was preventing her from getting work.
”The record had prevented her from being able to seek housing, apply for jobs, it affected every facet of her life,” Perry-Beach said. “We were able to completely expunge her record and I just received a text message that said, ‘Hey you absolutely changed my life.”
Perry- Beach is also the new president of this group, and is the first African American to fill that role here.
The group also hosts clinics every month too such as veteran help clinics, family law clinics, and more.
