Our Services

GWLS was founded in 2017, to provide access to affordable legal services for community members who may not be able to afford the services of a private attorney. GWLS is dedicated to seeking justice through low-cost legal resources, free monthly legal advice clinics, and legal empowerment workshops.

We are committed to dismantling legal barriers in a manner that empowers our clients. We pursue justice through holistic care, advocacy, and an understanding that our clients are more than their presenting legal issue. By collaborating with our community and the services within it, we are creating lasting solutions to systemic problems.

Legal Empowerment Workshops

Knowledge is power. Our legal empowerment workshops educate our community about their rights and responsibilities under the law. They equip our community with the tools necessary to build power to overcome. 

 

Some examples include:

  • Immigration 101

  • Tenant-Landlord Top 10

  • Do I need a Will?

  • Protect My House! (land/home ownership & title issues)

  • Family Matters

 

Contact us if interested in setting up a Legal Empowerment Workshop with your community organization, church, or any other group!
