I'll appreciate hearing back from you as I'm not sure how to proceed. My husband hired my lawyer from the past and I need to find a lawyer to represent me as I received the divorce notice ten days ago. Thank you in advance

I know this is short notice but I have an upcoming hearing at the Cumberland Gardens Housing office regarding a letter I received upon my return from vacation stating I have to vacate my premises. This hearing stems from an incident that occurred at Cumberland Gardens,whereby two of my neighbors physically attacked me. I was found not guilty. The neighbors did not receive a notice to vacate from the Allentown Housing Authority.

Me llamaron para una audiencia y perdí la llamada y se que de lo que alegan es un error del servicio de desempleo. Por lo que pido orientación para saber qué puedo hacer.

I was wondering if you guys deal with appeals, because I have to re appeal a hearing and didn’t know if you guys do court hearing for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance.

Important Information

Legal Aid Funding
Legal aid professionals and organizations oftentimes receive government funding for taking on cases with those who cannot afford attorneys. For the most part, funding is limited so legal aid entities can only take on a limited amount of cases. Qualifications are often rigid.
