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: 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.” 

Why I Volunteer for CVLS

Volunteer Janice Dantes recently closed her first case for CVLS! Read on for her account of the case and her experience volunteering with CVLS.

I took a deep breath and selected an adult guardianship case, my first real case. These were real people with a real legal problem. I was going to have to go before a real judge. Gulp!
