Community Health Law Project announces that they will be accepting new clients under a Division of Developmental Disability contract

The Law Project is very pleased that once again its attorneys and advocates can provide legal and advocacy assistance to individuals and families in the community who are receiving services from the Division. The Law Project has provided representation to residents of New Jersey for forty years through its five regional offices and four satellite offices.

Attorneys and advocates will provide representation and brief service in many civil law issues and in entitlement cases.  Assistance will be available in areas including:

Housing advocacy such as landlord-tenant disputes;

Public entitlements, including eligibility for SSI, SSDI, public assistance, and food stamps;

Medicaid, Medicare, and other healthcare issues such as managed care disputes;

Child support, visitation, domestic violence;

Barrier-free accessibility, American with Disabilities Act and New Jersey Law Against Discrimination matters;  

Surrogate decision making issues including wills, living wills, advance directives, powers of attorney, and uncontested guardianships (also limited guardianship and  conservatorship).
