The mission of the Public Advocate is simple: We offer high- quality, low-cost legal services for everyday people in the community we care about.
When it's time to call an attorney, it usually means things have gotten out of hand. You're in a difficult situation and you need help navigating. That's what we're here for. We're proud to be on your side. From the very first time you calll, you'll find that we really listen to your concerns, and that we work creatively to find solutions that meet your needs.
Sometimes this means going to court. You'll find that we are aggressive litigators, and we'll defend your rights with everything we've got. Sometimes the courtroom isn't the right place to resolve your conflict. We're highly skilled mediators, and well versed in alternative practices such as restorative justice and collaborative law. Maybe your issue is a bigger one, an overarching struggle confronting the whole community. We've crafted legislation, led political organizing efforts, brought class action lawsuits, and advocated for lasting change with grassroots methods. We've helped nonprofit organizations with formation, grantwriting, and organizational strategy.
The Public Advocate has been helping people for over twenty years. We're a small firm, and we're small on purpose. We offer flexibility, personal service, and the kind of close working relationships that are seldom possible with mega-firms. We're proud of our work, we're proud of the trust our clients place in us, and we'd be delighted to speak with you about your legal needs. Give us a call, and we'll get to work for you.
