Opening of a New Debtor Assistance Project ("DAP") Location
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Maryland ("USBC"), in conjunction with the Allegany Law Foundation, Inc. ("Allegany Law"), is pleased to announce the expansion of the DAP to the office of Allegany Law in Cumberland, Maryland. The new location is scheduled to open on Friday, January 20, 2012, and will operate on the third Friday of each month thereafter.
The DAP is a pro bono legal clinic focused on providing free pre-scheduled 30-minute consultations (conducted by volunteer attorneys) to individuals who do not have attorneys and need legal advice on bankruptcy matters. The existing DAP locations are in Baltimore, Greenbelt, and Easton. The DAP is the result of a collaborative effort of the USBC, the MD State Bar Association, the Bankruptcy Bar Association for the District of Maryland, Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service, the U.S. Trustees for the District of Maryland, Community Legal Services of Prince George’s County, Pro Bono Resource Center of Maryland, MidShore Pro Bono, Inc., Civil Justice, and the Bar Association of Montgomery County, Maryland. Allegany Law is the newest DAP collaborator.
