JUF Evelyn R. Greene Legal Services provides much needed civil legal help to low-income families in the Chicago area.

At the core of this program are the pro bono attorneys. A small JUF staff screen incoming cases, providing advice and brief services when appropriate. Then, staff match each client with a volunteer attorney who generously donates their time and talents to provide the necessary legal advocacy. JUF partners with Chicago Volunteer Legal Services Foundation (CVLS) to provide administrative support, malpractice insurance, and legal resources for all volunteers.
