ECLAA = free legal help on civil law crises for low-income Essex County NJ residents
The "average" ECLAA client is an African-American woman raising children and renting a Newark apartment from which she faces imminent eviction. But an "average" cannot tell you about real people. Here are brief stories about 21 tenants who our lawyers have helped.
For all ECLAA clients -- even if all we can do is help them transition out of their apartment with minimal distress and disruption to their families' lives, our service goes well beyond that provided by strictly pro se legal clinics. For each client, there are typically at least 2 and often 3 or more consultations.
