Marshall Dennehey Partners with CLCP to Provide Pro Bono Legal Services at Salvation Army Clinic

May 16, 2016

Marshall Dennehey has partnered with Christian Legal Clinics of Philadelphia (CLCP) to provide pro bono legal services to low-income and disadvantaged people in North Philadelphia. The clinic will be located at the Salvation Army in Fairmount at 701 North Broad Street. 

CLCP is an urban legal ministry that seeks to address injustice and poverty in partnership with existing inner-city host ministries by bringing volunteer attorneys into neighborhoods where their services are most needed. Since it began in 2002, CLCP has helped thousands of people and today runs 10 clinics throughout the Philadelphia area.

More than 20 firm attorneys will rotate shifts to staff the clinic, which will be open one or two evenings per month. CLCP will provide required training for lawyers to assist clients in matters involving record expungement, family violence and custody battles, housing, employment, immigration, government benefits, consumer problems and more. 

"We have been looking for opportunities that would allow our attorneys to engage in pro bono work in a meaningful and manageable way, and CLCP was a perfect fit for us," said G. Mark Thompson, Executive Committee Member at Marshall Dennehey. "As lawyers, there is nothing more gratifying than making the legal justice system work for those in greatest need."

The clinic is scheduled to open on June 9, 2016 at 5:00 p.m. For more information, please visit www.clcphila.org.
