Maryland Disability Law Center (MDLC), a non-profit 501(c)(3) legal advocacy organization, is Maryland’s designated Protection and Advocacy agency, mandated to advance the civil rights of people with disabilities. We provide free legal services to Marylanders of any age with all types of disabilities (developmental, intellectual, psychiatric, physical, sensory, learning, traumatic brain injury), who live in facilities, in the community or who are homeless.
MDLC maximizes resources by using an array of advocacy strategies, including information and referral, advice and counsel, outreach and education, monitoring and investigations, training and technical assistance, coalition and policy work, individual representation, impact litigation and support for self-advocacy.
MDLC creates a more integrated, just society and improves the lives of people with disabilities by advancing legal rights and ensuring equality of opportunity to participate in community life.
