About Us

Mission Statement: MVLS removes barriers to justice through free civil legal help, community engagement, and advocacy for equitable laws.

Vision Statement: Our vision is for a fair legal system that is free of injustice and equitably serves underrepresented Marylanders.

Stabilizing Communities Through Legal Services, Community Partnership and Advocacy

MVLS directly helps Marylanders facing legal challenges, while also fighting to change systems that harm people living in or near poverty. MVLS accomplishes this through pro bono representation, community engagement, and legislative and administrative advocacy. Our volunteer attorneys and tax professionals help individual clients resolve their life changing civil issues. MVLS staff attorneys build on that impact by building meaningful community partnerships and identifying specific inequities that are borne out in our clients’ stories and in the legal system at large. We leverage this knowledge to advocate for more equitable laws.


MVLS core values are: Teamwork; Passion for Mission; Commitment to Eliminating Systemic Barriers to Justice Based on Race and Economic Disparities; Commitment to Clients, Volunteers and Community Partners; Initiative; and Promise to our Donors. The full summary of our core values can be found on our About Us page - https://mvlslaw.org/about-us/.
