Invest in People Like José

If you haven’t watched the video above, please take just a few minutes out of your day to learn more about José’s story. Jose, a Spanish-speaking client, called CARPLS when he had nowhere else to turn. Our compassionate attorneys empower clients to advocate for themselves. Working together, we create a more just and equitable legal system that benefits both our clients and the underserved communities where they live.

A 501(c)(3) nonprofit since 1993, CARPLS has provided over one million free legal consultations to date and last year alone helped 70,000 Illinoisans with their legal problems. 

By making a donation, you will be a part of our vision to provide access to legal justice to all low- and moderate-income Illinoisans in need.
