Our attorneys are committed to client-centered, passionate, proactive, comprehensive, and holistic representation of the marginalized in our community. We believe this standard of defense is necessary to ensure everyone’s rights are protected. Beyond that standard, we also hope to bring the love of community into our work and into the entire criminal justice system, as true justice means making our entire community whole again – the accused and victims – rather than tearing people down. 

To be eligible for our services, a potential client must satisfy only two conditions:

  1. Qualify as indigent; and,
  2. Their current representation qualifies as inadequate. Clients are selected on a case-by-case basis as resources become available and recognizing that individual needs are always unique. Please complete the form here to apply.
