Submit an Application Form. Please do not include any confidential information.
A representative will contact you to either get more information or to let you know your case does not meet the mission of MLFA.
MLFA´s legal department may contact you for more information to better evaluate your case.
If your case is an appropriate case that meets the organization’s mission guidelines and there are legal issues of merit a relevant MLFA attorney will draft a memorandum to the MLFA Legal Committee with a recommendation whether to accept your case. This may involve weighing many factors, including MLFA´s legal team capacity, whether MLFA is already pursuing cases with similar legal issues, and any conflicts of interest.
If MLFA accepts your case after approval from MLFA´s Legal Committee, you will receive notification and a client agreement. MLFA must have a signed client agreement before representation begins.
