Ramsey County Housing Court Clinic
SMRLS is pleased to announce a new clinic at the Ramsey County Courthouse. This clinic is running every Tuesday and Thursday morning during the Housing Court first appearance calendar. Clients can receive free legal advice from a volunteer attorney before heading into the courtroom. Volunteer Attorneys from SMRLS and Volunteer Lawyers Network are participating. Clients can also apply for Emergency Assistance at the clinic and meet with a mediator from the Dispute Resolution Center to reach a settlement in their case.
SMRLS needs volunteers to help us staff the clinic. We are looking for attorneys to come in once or twice a month, or more. Experience in landlord/tenant law is not required - we will provide the training and support you need.
The clinic just started on July 24, 2018, and already we can see that the availability of attorneys and other supports are making a real difference in people’s lives. Come join us!
For more information or to volunteer, contact Carol Bros at 651-894-6912 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Andrea Palumbo at 651-894-6934 or email@example.com
