Affordable, non-profit community education and representation for everyday people, in immigration, family and other matters. Representing 100+ clients ranging from Central American victims of violence to parents facing challenges with the custody and protection of their children.
We serve 100+ clients who often have to choose between rent, food and/or legal representation. Your support and contributions will help us fill the "justice gap," so we can serve more modest-income folks who otherwise have no help with their legal problems.

Forthright handles immigration, family, employment, housing and other cases. For example, we have helped dozens of Central American women and children make their asylum cases. And we have represented numbers of abused women obtain protection and custody and support for their children.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit based in Charlottesville, Virginia. We collaborate with community-based service organizations to provide legal services to modest income folks, with payment plans and fees scaled to client income. We cooperate with these organizations to enhance local understanding of the complexity of immigration and its intersection with other legal matters.

He has extensive non-profit management experience, most recently as Chair of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville, a national leader in affordable housing.
