FreeState Legal is a legal advocacy organization that seeks to improve the lives of low-income lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Marylanders. Despite recent, incremental judicial victories for the national LGBT community, the low-income LGBT population continues to struggle with legal challenges such harassment, complex family law issues, and anti-LGBT discrimination in employment, housing, foster care, healthcare and public accommodations. In addition to needing attorneys with specific knowledge of how the law affects LGBT citizens, LGBT clients need attorneys who will treat them with respect and understanding. FreeStates mission is to combine direct legal services with education and outreach to ensure that the low-income LGBT community Maryland receives fair treatment in the law and society.

I went to their drop in hours at GLCCB for help with a name change issue. The person I met with was really helpful, respectful, and is available for follow up after I try the advice I was given.
