We offer services for legal issues pertaining to family law, housing, immigration, and financial stability; but this legal clinic is focused on fair housing and housing discrimination.

Discrimination in the terms or conditions of a sale, rental, or in services or facilities.
Falsely denying housing availability.
Advertising in a discriminatory way.
Discrimination in financing, broker’s services, or homeowner’s insurance.
