HOW WE DID IT


In 2020, MVLP closed 80 cases assisting individuals through court room representation. With courtroom visitation, clients are places with volunteer attorneys who provide legal advice, drafted pleadings and will represent them in courtroom
.


In 2020, MVLP helped 169 individuals represent themselves in court. With self-representation, clients are placed with attorneys who provide legal advice, drafted pleadings and instructions on how to represent themselves in court. The attorney does not enter an appearance on behalf of the client. The client goes to Court on his/her own. 


In 2020, MVLP referred 670 individuals to other programs that were better suited to assist the individuals in their pursuit of justice. Review a list of resources to help you on your journey. Find out how to choose an attorney, how to understand Mississippi's court system, and more.
