Staff Attorney Duties: Represent clients in state and federal court and before administrative agencies in a wide range of cases, including: Social Security Disability appeals; other public benefits programs appeals such as SNAP, TANF, and Medicaid; housing matters such as wrongful eviction and habitability issues; family law matters such as orders of protection, child custody, and guardianships where there is a safety concern; and other potentially health-harming legal matters. Interact with the local Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), other medical facilities, and other partner organizations serving our clients.
