Pro-Bono Opportunity w/ Northwest Justice Project

Northwest Justice Project, which provides civil legal services to low-income persons who could not otherwise afford them, seeks your probate expertise on a pro bono basis to assist its clients. NJP’s Foreclosure Unit assists clients who are at risk of losing their homes to foreclosure. The unit sometimes finds its efforts are hampered by the fact that title to the client’s home is still in the name of a deceased parent. A common example involves a client facing a tax foreclosure who would qualify for a property tax exemption or a rescue loan but cannot obtain either because, without probate, the client does not have title to the property. Your assistance, working with NJP lawyers, can resolve that problem and prevent foreclosure. Please contact Dave Tarshes (206-707-0935) or Chelsea Hicks (206-707-0933) if you are available and interested to help.
