NJPs mission is to secure justice through high quality legal advocacy that promotes the long-term well-being of low-income individuals, families, and communities. As a dynamic statewide law firm, we pursue our mission through legal advice and representation, community partnerships, and education to empower clients and combat injustice in all its forms.
NJP generally handles civil legal problems facing low income people due to lack of income, problems with education, employment or loss of employment, disabilities, discrimination, consumer abuse or illegal business practices, physical or family safety, as well as barriers low income people face when applying for government services, seeking help, or accessing the courts or other means of resolving disputes or addressing their needs.
There is no charge for clients who are financially eligible for NJP services. NJP lawyers are paid by NJP with funds primarily provided by the federal government through the national Legal Services Corporation and by the state legislature through the Office of Civil Legal Aid. NJP also receives limited private funds and support from the Legal Foundation of Washington and the Campaign for Equal Justice.
TeamChild shares this location. TeamChild uses its legal expertise and community partnerships to break down barriers to community services in order to overcome the root causes of a youths involvement in the juvenile justice system. TeamChild works with youth, generally between the ages of 12-18, who come from low-income families and are involved, or at risk of involvement, in the juvenile justice system. Some of the youth we serve are facing criminal charges. Some have already been convicted and are on diversion, probation, or parole. Other youth might have contact with juvenile court because of dependency matters (foster care), or because of a Child In Need of Services (CHINS), At Risk Youth (ARY), or truancy petition.
