New Outreach Initiative Brings Civil Legal Resources to Baltimore County Residents
Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service (MVLS), the largest provider of pro bono civil legal services to Marylanders, today announced it is joining the Baltimore County Public Library’s (BCPL) Bookmobile roadshow during select dates in Summer 2022. Through this new outreach initiative, MVLS will deliver civil legal resources to those who need pro bono legal assistance for housing, family and employment challenges.
“MVLS is thrilled to partner with the Baltimore County Public Library’s Bookmobile program to raise awareness of free legal services available to Baltimore County residents,” said Chandler Walters, outreach and communications manager, Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service. “We want Baltimore County residents to know pro bono attorneys are available to help with cases involving estate planning and administration, child custody, divorce, foreclosure, income tax disputes, and so much more. We know many people can face obstacles when looking for the resources they need—that’s why we’re building our presence in the community to personally connect with individuals visiting the Bookmobile.”
