We are able to provide basic legal aid services to Philadelphians in need with the generous support of our donors and supporters. Help us start the new year with a gift of justice. We are here for all Philadelphians to provide reliable information and compassionate legal advocacy. If you live in Pennsylvania and need help with a legal matter, but can`t afford to pay for an attorney, the following groups can help: Sometimes the bureaucracy doesn`t want to listen, especially when it makes a mistake. A grandmother with limited income was informed that she had received an overpayment of $1,100 in her Social Security benefits and was ordered to pay it back. At that time, the woman was struggling to pay for a new roof and stove for the old house where she cared for her granddaughter. One of our legal aid membership programs, North Penn Legal Services, has appealed on his behalf. In the end, it was decided that the overpayment was Social Security`s fault, and the claim for reimbursement was withdrawn. Without legal assistance, the woman would have been unjustly punished.
