Justice starts today with a confidential lawyer consultation.

problem

Employment issues (like discrimination, harassment, or wage theft) are among the most common type of legal challenge faced every year by low and moderate-income Marylanders.

 

And yet, if you go to a legal aid organization with an employment issue, you're twice as likely to be turned away as someone with a family law or housing issue. Employment law cases can be lengthy, complex, and beyond the comfort level of most legal aid organizations.
