In addition, we often enter eviction lawsuits at critical moments in the procedural process when clients have defaulted and evictions are imminent. This work requires the immediate filing of motions and ex parte applications. Court Certified students are able to make these appearances and argue these motions. We also work closely with community social workers and medical professionals around disability rights and requests for reasonable accommodations for housing retention.
In addition to Eviction Defense/Housing, our primary practice areas are Income Support, Elder Abuse Prevention, Health, End of Life Planning and Debt Collection Defense. Interns may be able to work on other cases on a limited basis.
LAE also welcomes applications from third-year law students/law school graduates seeing fellowship sponsors.
