MACC Legal is a volunteer operated, nonprofit legal clinic on the east side of Detroit. It holds office hours on the first and third Saturdays of each month to offer clients advice and counsel on common legal issues including landlord tenant, consumer credit, family law, and property matters.
A training for attorneys as well as non-attorneys interested in serving in an administrative role will be held on Saturday February 29th from 11 am to 1:00 p.m. Learn about the history and philosophy of MACC Legal as one of the outreach programs operated by MACC Development, a Christian Community Development Corporation.; the procedures utilized at advice and counsel days; and the expectations for our volunteers.
Volunteers typically serve once every two months on a Saturday from 11 am to 2 p.m. Lawyers will meet with clients for one hour sessions to discuss legal problems, review paperwork, and offer advice. Limited drafting of some legal documents is occasionally required. The attorneys do not undertake ongoing representation nor enter their appearance as counsel of record. MACC Legal provides malpractice insurance to all of its volunteers. A current license in good standing with the Michigan State Bar is required.
Administrative volunteers are responsible for greeting clients, assisting them in completing intake forms, accepting payment, copying documents, creating a file, and data entry. No prior legal experience is required.
We will offer a catered lunch, so an accurate headcount of expected attendees is appreciated.
