Function of Organization/Site

Community Law Center, a nonprofit law firm, provides legal services to community and nonprofit organizations throughout Maryland to promote stronger nonprofits and more vibrant neighborhoods. Community Law Center is Maryland's only legal services organization dedicated solely to strengthening neighborhoods and the nonprofit sector. We seek partnerships and collaborations with both public and private entities to realize each client's strategic goals. With staff attorneys and over 600 volunteer attorneys, Community Law Center is equipped to provide representation to neighborhoods and nonprofits for all of their legal needs. Community Law Center is the legal partner to communities and nonprofits that lack the financial resources to pay for private legal representation. Community Law Center makes an important and unique contribution to the region as it utilizes its expertise and effectiveness in using the law to overcome or mitigate many of the problems that impact the health, safety and welfare of neighborhoods. Through our programs, we have assisted in the formation and growth of hundreds of community associations and nonprofits, facilitated the revitalization of blighted land and vacant structures, reduced crime and nuisance activities stemming from residential and commercial properties, and helped communities and nonprofits grow, accomplish their goals, and achieve their missions.
