On Tuesday, September 13th, Reed Smith attorneys adopted the Legal Prep Community Law Clinic in the Garfield Park neighborhood. Reed Smith also adopted the clinic last year and all those attorneys returned to volunteer a second time.

The four volunteers assisted six low-income clients with legal issues such as adult guardianships, divorce and landlord/tenent disputes.

The Alumni Network Leadership Council hosts this clinic on the second Tuesday of every month, and Chicago Volunteer Legal Services refers local clients to meet with attorneys at the clinic.

Law firms with PILI Alumni can adopt an evening of the clinic. If your firm is interested, please contact Executive Director Michael Bergmann by email or by phone at 312-832-5129.
