The Salem office provides advice and representation in the following areas:

Housing Law, including wrongful eviction defense, termination of federally-subsidized or public housing, significant repair/habitability cases, cases involving discrimination against tenants, and other housing issues on behalf of domestic violence survivors.

Public Benefits, including TANF, Food Stamps/SNAP, Medicare or Medicaid/Oregon Health Plan cases, Unemployment Insurance denials or terminations, and Veterans Affairs. Social Security cases are limited to SSI and SSD overpayments and terminations only.  Services also include long-term care terminations and involuntary move-outs, including cases arising in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, adult foster homes, terminations of in-home care, and reductions in caretaking hours.

Court-Imposed Debt/Fines, including elimination of court-imposed debt/fines, and challenges to court-imposed license suspensions after October 1, 2020, as the result of court-debt or fines, and court-initiated contempt proceedings for non-payment of court imposed debt or fines, and cases in which a court has used a collection agency charging more than he maximum collection fee permitted by law.

Immigration Law, is limited to referrals only of U visa, T visa, and VAWA cases.

Appellate Law, including a limited number of state-level civil or administrative appellate cases likely to broadly affect low-income Oregonians or domestic violence survivors.
