Welcome to the JustAdvice® Project

The JustAdvice® Project sessions for this semester will begin on September 3, 2020 and end on November16, 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all individuals will be required to schedule an appointment ahead of time.  Please contact us at justadviceclinic@gmail.com or 410-929-4809.  Please leave a voicemail if no one answers. 

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?

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the JustAdvice® Project will hosts telephonic and videoconferencing advise sessions by appointment only. 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.
