Mae's Legal Aid Success Story

Mae stands for a portrait next to the window she used to sit in front of in her Franklin apartment. After receiving help from the Legal Advice and Referral Center in an eviction dispute – and getting the eviction dismissed in court – She decided to move to another apartment.

Following a domestic violence incident, the 61-year-old said she and her 11-year-old daughter were abandoned by her partner. She subsequently suffered a stroke and short-term memory problems. Instead of accepting her late payment of rent, her landlord filed an eviction. However, he demanded excessive payment and twice the legal amount of security deposit. LARC prepared Mae to make her case in court. She got the eviction dismissed and moved to an affordable unit with a clean tenant record.

“I was a nervous wreck when I called LARC,” Mae says. “I didn’t know there was any help out there for someone like me, but there was. It’s a huge weight off of my mind.” 

Joyce's Legal Aid Success Story

Joyce reached out for legal aid when she decided to divorce her abusive husband. He had been abusive throughout their marriage, whenever he was drinking. He once threw her down the stairs so hard he broke her back and leg. She’s walked with a cane and been unable to work ever since.

Shortly before she called legal aid, Joyce had taken in her four grandchildren. Their mother is struggling with drug addiction and unable to care for them. The stress of four children in the home made her husband even more volatile. Even though he was the sole income for the house, she filed for a protective order.

“It was a long run, my divorce, and it was a nightmare,” Joyce says. “But NHLA got me alimony so we could find a new place to live. I don’t know what I would have done without (my legal aid attorney). There was no way I was ever letting my grandkids get broken up, and there was no way I was going back to him.”
