Board of Directors

Our Board of Directors sets the policy under which Neighborhood Legal Services operates. Its members include representatives of client and community organizations who help identify the legal needs of low-income individuals and families; attorneys who understand how those needs can be met under the law; and representatives of county bar associations who foster the important role of pro bono attorneys.
