Welcome to the JustAdvice® Project

The JustAdvice® Project sessions for this semester will begin on September 6, 2018 and end on November 20, 2018.  Please see “What if I want to Schedule an Appointment” below if you would like to make an appointment.

What is the JustAdvice® Project?

A project of the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law Clinical Program, the JustAdvice®Project provides free legal consultation to Maryland residents.  The program began operating in June 2009 and was restructured and relaunched in its current form in April 2010.  Since its creation in 2009, the JustAdvice®Project has served over 2,800 individuals providing legal advice on a broad range of legal issues.  These issues include matters concerning family law, housing, employment, expungement, insurance, consumer law, taxes, civil actions, and social security. The program’s goal is to increase access to justice within the Baltimore community by providing a free alternative for individuals in need of legal advice who do not qualify for Legal Aid, but may not have the resources to hire a private attorney.

What Does the JustAdvice® Project Do?

The JustAdvice® Project hosts two three-hour sessions each week. Clients receive up to 30 minutes with an experienced attorney to discuss their legal issue.  During this meeting, clients can gain a better understanding of the legal issues they face and receive advice on how to proceed in order to resolve those issues.  As noted above, the JustAdvice® Project will assist with legal issues pertaining to family law, housing, employment, insurance, social security, taxes, and consumer concerns.  In addition, the JustAdvice® Project can also help with expungement of court records by assisting with the completion of the required forms.
