Civil Legal Aid in Action

When Callie first realized she needed legal help, she was desperate. Even though she was only 32, she had been diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer and was struggling to cope with the treatments.  At the same time, her home life was deteriorating as her husband became increasingly abusive and violent. Callie couldn’t risk losing the health insurance she got through her husband, but she knew she couldn’t stay married any longer. Luckily, a pro bono attorney was there to help.
