In this story from The Intelligencer, reporter Jo Ciavaglia spoke with LASP''s Executive Director Liz Fritsch about the unmet legal needs of the poor, focusing on Bucks and Montgomery counties, and the ongoing efforts ofLASP to address these needs in the face of diminishing resources.
President Trump's FY2018 "budget blueprint" released in March proposed defunding Legal Services Corporation (LSC). The full budget proposal released on May 23 has called for LSC's elimination, allocating only enough to conduct a closeout.
LASP is facing a potential loss of 40% of its budget which would mean deep cuts in services for residents in each of the counties that we serve. This includes services to seniors victimized by consumer scams, women needing protection orders from abusive spouses, and veterans seeking earned benefits who turn to civil legal aid offices for help. If you have questions about how funding changes may impact LASP, please contact our Executive Director Elizabeth Fritsch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
No one should have to face a critical legal issue alone. Legal Aid of Southeastern Pennsylvania makes a difference in the lives of the clients we serve in Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties by providing professional legal help to those who cannot afford the services of a private attorney.
Whatever the particulars of the case, we make sure that our clients have an equal shot at justice.
