Eligible patients will work with attorney Emma Douglas to get their issues resolved at no cost. In addition, qualifying patients will also receive annual screenings for potential health-harming issues in their lives that may reveal a need for civil legal assistance.

“Community health centers are a vital way for our attorneys to connect with eligible clients in communities across our state,” said Jon Laramore, executive director of ILS. “We are excited to partner with HealthLinc to connect those who typically can’t afford an attorney with the resources to address legal needs that also impact their health.”
