Do I Qualify for Free Legal Help?
MVLS provides pro bono legal representation to Marylanders with limited income in civil legal matters. To qualify for services, you should check that you meet income, case type and geographic guidelines. If you are eligible, you will be matched with a volunteer who has the skill and expertise to provide quality legal representation to you for the life of your case.
Services are provided in every county, except Allegany, Caroline, Dorchester, Kent, Montgomery, Prince George’s, Queen Anne, and Talbot counties (with some exceptions).
Gross household income (money earned before anything is taken out for taxes or other deductions) may not exceed 50% of the Maryland median income.
