By networking intimately throughout the community and listening closely to client needs, BCJ is positioned to collaborate with existing health, educational, housing, domestic violence, and women’s organizations to identify gaps in services and help fill those needs without duplicating services. These collaborations allow those with expertise on various legal and social issues to work together, all in greater service to the community.
We have 24 attorneys, two accountants, and two mediators, who volunteer pro bono and reduced-fee professional services to BCJ clients. We’ve served over 2,000 clients and their families, in a wide variety of legal and social issues. We’ve helped single mothers avoid eviction. We’ve helped entrepreneurs get the legal and zoning support they need to develop their new businesses. BCJ clients are grateful to have someone to turn to with their legal issues. Our clients receive the legal counsel they deserve, even if they can’t afford to pay full fee for an attorney.
BCJ serves county employers who call us on behalf of their employees who have legal issues. Employers understand that they benefit when their employees’ legal needs are cared for.
