Legal Referral Service

The JFS Legal Referral Service was created in 2008 during the economic downtown to help our clients obtain legal consultation and possible representation. Since then, we are proud to have provided millions of dollars in legal services to those who would otherwise go without.
We are looking for lawyers who are willing to accept at least one pro bono client per year in the areas of:

• Family Law
• Elder law
• Debt Resolution/Bankruptcy
• Probate
• Landlord/Tenant

Success Story

Beth recently left a violent and stressful situation.  Her husband was abusing her physically, verbally and sexually.  With the help of JFS, she fled her marital home while her husband was at work, and is now living at the secure shelter.  Fearing for her safety, she left quickly, without clothes, possessions or financial documentation.  In addition to receiving counseling services, Beth was assisted by one of our attorneys in order to file for divorce and maintain her safety.
