Are you ready to join MVLS…
in its mission to provide quality legal services that help low-income Marylanders? There are so many ways you can help.
First I would like to say my volunteer attorney and staff was great! They helped me through the whole process in a very professional manner. I can’t thank the MVLS enough for all you have done to get my life back on track.
I am able to move forward with my life and pursue dreams that weren’t possible. My volunteer attorney showed great concern for me. He showed outstanding legal representation. Thanks a bunch!
You have no idea how much you helped me. I had given up. I thought because they were so big and I was so small I could never win.
My volunteer attorney gave me strength to keep pushing to do what was best for my children and was a never ending resource for me in addition to all the hard work she put in preparing my divorce. I cannot say enough about grateful I am to her for her dedication, professionalism, compassion, knowledge and wisdom.
What you offer is priceless. It allowed someone like me who had been challenged by life an avenue to adequately fight back.
