We at SCALE Legal provide pro bono legal services to survivors of human trafficking and torture. The inability to pay for legal services is no reason not to have access to them, especially after having overcome unthinkable traumatic experiences. Our attorneys work to assist survivors that qualify for our services with their immigration cases so that they can focus on regaining control of their lives without having to navigate complex legal issues on their own. Additionally, we want to close the justice gap and believe that everyone deserves access to high-quality legal services and experienced legal professionals! We provide low-cost legal services on a sliding scale to those that qualify based on their income. All proceeds from these low-cost legal services are then used as resources to fund our pro bono human trafficking and torture survivor programs.
Defined by our mission to represent the underrepresented, to assist survivors of human trafficking and torture in navigating their immigration cases, and to increase access to experienced attorneys for low to moderate income members of the community. SCALE Legal was founded to help bridge the justice gap. Although several factors contribute to a lack of representation, the inability to pay steep private attorney’s fees is one of the most prevalent. We provide pro bono services to survivors of human trafficking and torture because a lack of resources preventing access to legal representation is reprehensible. Further, members of the community with moderate to low income often earn too much to qualify for pro bono services, yet cannot afford the market price for an attorney, so they opt to go without representation. We are here to provide that representation. Our sliding fee scale model charges attorney’s fees based on annual household income, making it more affordable to get help, and all fees paid are used to support our pro bono programs.
We at SCALE Legal are qualified by our experience. Every case we take is assigned to a supervising attorney with a minimum of five years’ experience practicing law.
We at SCALE Legal are distinguished by our service. We are here to represent those who need us most and promise to do so with dedication, professionalism, and excellence regardless of socioeconomic status.
