Legal Clinic

Legal representation is one of the greatest unmet needs confronting victims of intimate partner violence throughout Maryland. The House of Ruth Maryland - Marjorie Cook Domestic Violence Legal Clinic helps more than 2,000 victims of domestic violence obtain protective orders, peace orders, divorce decrees, custody of their children and child support for free each year. We currently staff 17 attorneys plus paralegals and administrative staff throughout 6 offices in Maryland, including courthouse locations in Baltimore City, Hyattsville, Upper Marlboro, Silver Spring and Montgomery County. To keep pace with the demand, more than 100 pro bono attorneys throughout Maryland have been trained and given technical support to prepare them for providing legal representation to battered women across the state.

Please call for more information on House of Ruth Maryland legal services and victims' legal rights.
