Review for Prairie State Legal Services, Inc., Rockford, IL, USA
In Aurora, a Prairie State Legal attorney (Kathy Bettcher) has been in collusion with one of America's worst slumlords, the Aurora Housing Authority (AHA), to help a development scheme.
AHA has been forcing people to live in substandard housing for years and exploited the poor, needy and taxpayers. Instead of helping those victimized by AHA, Prairie State Legal has been colluding with them.
Michael O'Connor, the executive director, has hidden from any response or responsibility for these issues.
So, we have no other choice but to conclude that Prairie State Legal does not deserve it's IRS exemption or donors. There is a great need for legal services for the poor and needy, but pouring funds into Prairie State Legal is fueling an enemy of the public.
We urge anyone to NOT donate to Prairie State Legal, but we do urge the legal system as a whole to address the incredible costs and unaffordability of legal services.
