About Us

MVLS provides free (and in some cases low cost) legal representation to Marylanders with limited income. We also provide free legal help for community-based nonprofits that are working to strengthen low-income communities in Maryland.

Each eligible individual client is matched with a volunteer lawyer who has the appropriate skills and expertise to provide quality representation. With a volunteer pool of 3,000 lawyers, MVLS provides services in every jurisdiction in the state.

  • Service Issues: From 101 to Service Evasion to Alternative Service – a training for attorneys

    Part of lawyering is carefully following each step in the rules, and part is being creative.  This training will focus on both – the 101s of how to affect appropriate service and being creative in dealing with service evasion.  The presenter will also discuss general thresholds that judges consider when determining  whether to accept alternative service.  Training is free and registrants can choose to attend in person or remotely via webinar.
