With 50 years of experience providing high quality, free legal services to low-income Chicagoans, CVLS and its volunteers are often recognized for their outstanding work.

Volunteer Spotlight: Leo

New clients to Chicago Volunteer Legal Services don’t usually know what to expect when they walk through the doors at CVLS’ administrative office. It is up to CVLS staff and volunteers to make their first interaction with CVLS a positive one.

Leo Feldman is one of the volunteers new clients get to meet. A retired partner at Teller, Levit & Silvertrust, P.C. Leo interviews prospective clients, learning the facts of their case, identifying the legal issues and brainstorming solutions.

Volunteer Spotlight: Jennifer

The immense need for legal representation among people with low income sometimes seems overwhelming.

Thankfully, CVLS has volunteers like Jennifer Lynn Wong

Jennifer heard about CVLS while attending DePaul Law School. She thought it was “a great way to get myself out there, meet more people and try to help out.”
