Common Ground Relief
Free Legal Clinic
Common Ground Relief hosts a free legal clinic at our Lower Ninth Ward offices on the first Saturday of each month.
In order to continue to provide free legal services to local residents we have partnered with The Louisiana Civil Justice Center.
This partnership allows us to provide a wide range of services including consumer protection matters, Elder Law, Family Law, Estate Planning, Foreclosure issues, government programming, Housing and Landlord-Tenant disputes. Attorneys are available on a daily basis. This partnership also expands Common Ground Relief’s services to the Spanish speaking community.
The Louisiana Civil Justice Center is the organization responsible for emergency assistance in the event of a future disaster, such as another hurricane, under the Louisiana State Bar Association/Access to Justice emergency disaster plan.
In addition, we continue to advocate for the restoration of certain rights and benefits of the formerly incarcerated. We support efforts to rehabilitate and educate first time criminal offenders rather than sending them to jail or prison.
