About Maxwell Street Legal Clinic

Maxwell Street Legal Clinic provides immigration law services to low income people who “fall through the cracks” of existing legal services: people fleeing persecution in their home countries; immigrant victims of domestic violence, crime and human trafficking; and lawful permanent residents seeking to unite their families here. In ten years, the Clinic has helped over 4000 individuals with more than 5500 legal matters. A map on the wall shows that it has helped families from all over the world—105 countries. Without the Clinic, most of them would have had nowhere to turn. With the Clinic’s help, they can achieve their dreams and become part of the community fabric of Central Kentucky.

Clinic programs include a unique Citizenship Project, to help legal permanent residents prepare for the citizenship exam. The Project has offered “one stop shop” citizenship workshops in Lexington, Richmond and Danville, with help from students and community volunteers. In the last year, 52 Maxwell Street clients took the naturalization oath and became U.S. citizens. The good work has been recognized with the 2007 Fayette County Bar Young Lawyer of the Year award for attorney Cori Hash and, this year, with the Liberation Award from the Kentucky Rescue and Restore Coalition for the Clinic’s assistance to victims of human trafficking.

With your help, we can sustain the good work. Join Maxwell Street Legal Clinic in helping to make the American dream come true!

In 2008, Maxwell Street Legal Clinic became a program of Kentucky Equal Justice Center, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit civil legal services program with a thirty year history of helping low income Kentuckians. Your donation may therefore be tax deductible.
