Our legal guide to the Reintegration Roadmap is an important resource for the legal implications of a criminal record on obtaining ID cards, housing, public benefits, and family matters. Beyond the legislative recommendation, Smith says the report draws attention to the need for tight national budgets in an age. ”I hope this report will spark a groundswell of support for legal aid,” Smith said. This agreement relates to the City of New Haven`s obligation to conduct an inspection of your home to determine if there is a lead hazard, ask your landlord to address any identified lead hazards, and ensure that your landlord performs a safe and complete elimination of lead-related hazards.

Legal aid is also available to clients who have other barriers, such as disability, age or discrimination. The legal aid office appointed Smith earlier this year, and she is taking the reins at a time when demand for legal services is high and is expected to increase with the election of Donald Trump. For more than half a century, New Haven Legal Assistance has advocated for residents facing barriers to justice. The only thing standing between many families and a descent into homelessness and poverty is qualified legal representation. In courtrooms, the battle for basic human needs is fought every day in cases against landlords who served eviction notices, employers who withheld wages, government agencies who denied benefits, and various other civil cases.
But unlike a criminal court, there is no constitutional right to a lawyer in a civil trial. This disadvantages people who do not have the means to be represented in cases that could change their CV. For more than half a century, New Haven Legal Assistance has worked to balance the scales of justice by providing free legal assistance to vulnerable clients. However, thousands of income-seeking clients are turned away by the four legal aid firms across the state because there are not enough resources to serve them. To fill this gap, a recent report by the Task Force on Improving Access to Legal Aid in Civil Matters recommends State legislation that would guarantee a citizen`s right to legal aid in three specific areas: injunctions; custody and deportation (deportation) procedures; and the defence of evictions. We use a combination of individual advocacy, impact litigation, policy advocacy and community legal education to improve the lives of people living in poverty and improve access to justice. Due to our limited resources, we cannot help everyone who uses our services in all cases of these categories. Find out how to apply for legal assistance. Clients come to New Haven Legal Assistance as walk-ins or through referrals from partner organizations. Clients with family law matters such as domestic violence are often referred by local homeless agencies and shelters, Smith says. Juvenile probation officers will refer special education and deportation cases. And health clinics will refer patients who also have legal problems, such as accessing services the state has denied.
Other areas of work include child protection, immigration and the rights of persons with disabilities. The office also handles a small number of criminal complaints. A 2008 survey found that more than 70 percent of low-income households in Connecticut had had a legal problem in the past year, but only 1 in 4 successfully received outside help because demand far exceeded the availability of services. New Haven Legal Assistance is one of the oldest legal aid firms in the country and has 18 lawyers, some of whom date back decades with the organization. Recent high-profile cases include representing tenants living in unsafe conditions at a publicly subsidized housing complex in New Haven and obtaining payment arrears routinely withheld by a deli owner.
