This training is for lawyers 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.
Lawyers 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 registering. Malpractice insurance is provided to volunteer lawyers, and they will also become eligible to receive reduced fee case referrals from the EEC Project.
The Economic Empowerment Center Project is a partnership led by the Mid-Shore Council on Family Violence with Citizens Assisting and Sheltering the Abused, Mid-Shore Pro Bono, and Pro Bono Resource Center of Maryland.
