This training is for attorneys who are interested in assisting domestic violence survivors with consumer issues, such as credit reporting, repair and advocacy, on a pro bono basis. The training will cover special considerations for domestic violence survivors/Economic Empowerment Center (EEC) Project clients, a basic overview of credit reporting, identifying and disputing errors, and tips for consults and/or review of sample credit reports.

Attorneys must agree to accept 1 pro bono case from Mid-Shore Pro Bono (which covers Kent, Queen Anne’s, Caroline, Talbot, and Dorchester counties) within 1 year of this registration. Malpractice insurance is provided to volunteer attorneys, and they will also become eligible to receive reduced fee case referrals from the EEC Project.
