The Eastern Shore's Legal Assistance Network

Our mission is to connect low income individuals and families in need of civil legal help with volunteer attorneys and community resources.  

Restorative Justice Project

Restorative Justice Project offers several Alternate Dispute Resolution options for youth and adults facing complex legal issues, crime and conflict. We make Community Conferencing available for incident-based referrals and utilize Restorative Dialogue Circles as a proactive tool for engaging youth in safe open discussions. Our goal is to provide options for keeping our region’s youth out of the juvenile justice system.

Vulnerable Population Assistance Project provides secure and safe legal assistance and counseling to immigrants living and working in our community. The Eastern Shore is home to an increasing number of immigrants due to the high demand for farmworkers and other labor needs. MSPB has seen the demand for services in this project triple over the last year.  MSPB is accredited by the Department of Justice to provide limited Immigration legal services and works with a small panel of volunteer attorneys to provide legal guidance for immigration, asylum, Special Immigrant Juvenile Status, and deportation defense.  MSPB is currently expanding its services to include standby guardianships for children of immigrants in danger of being detained or deported. 

Elder Law Project

Elder Law Project recognizes that a growing portion of Eastern Shore residents are seniors,  provides elderly clients with personal, confidential legal advice through free legal clinics. Clients can obtain wills, powers of attorney and advance medical directives free of charge. MSPB recently launched a new initiative to provide legal guidance for caregivers seeking to obtain guardianship of elderly or disabled adults in response to increased requests for assistance.

Family Law Project provides legal assistance for divorce, custody, child support and other family law related matters. This project has the highest volume of requests among our programs. In response to the dramatically increased need for child custody assistance due to the opioid crisis, our family law project currently prioritizes providing services for impacted families.

Economic Stability Project

Consumer Debt and Housing Project assists clients with foreclosure, consumer debt, bankruptcy, employment/record expungements, housing and other matters preventing them from achieving economic stability. In November 2019, MSPB will launch a financial and legal literacy outreach campaign featuring a series of workshops aimed at educating clients about household budgeting, renting and buying a home, and navigating unemployment and expungement.
