SMRLS Board member Terry Newby tells the story of his first pro bono case with SMRLS.
When giving to SMRLS your donation will make a real and lasting impact in the lives of those we serve.
Serving those in need
To be eligible for SMRLS’ services, a client’s gross annual income must fall at or below 125% of Federal Poverty Guidelines. By current standards this equates to $14,713/yr for a single person home and $30,313/yr for a family of four. We serve those in our society that are most vulnerable and needing of assistance.
The needs are great, and ever growing
Over one half million Minnesotans live in poverty. Because of limited resources, SMRLS is currently able to fully serve only 40% of the individuals who contact the firm for help.
Because, Justice Matters
SMRLS staff is committed to providing a full range of quality legal services, often going above and beyond the call of duty to ensure clients’ needs are met. The firm is well recognized for its innovative practice, strong partnerships, and high standard of work.
