Advisory Board

Metropolitan Family Services' Legal Aid Society was one of the first organizations in the nation to provide legal services for the poor. From the beginning it has helped provide "justice for all," regardless of ability to pay.

Some of Chicago's most noted attorneys are active members of the Legal Aid Society Advisory board.
