Review for Prairie State Legal Services, Inc., Rockford, IL, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Prairie State is an excellent legal services organization that is an invaluable part of many communities in Central Illinois. Without Prairie State, untold numbers of low-income people in Illinois would be unable to access critical legal services. Prairie State accomplishes a lot with very limited resources. Denise Conklin (and Lisa Wilson before her) and Sandy Crow and all of the staff at Prairie State in Peoria accomplish a tremendous amount of good. I have been involved in numerous initiatives with Prairie State over the last 5 years and can attest to the quality and value of their contributions. As a volunteer lawyer on pro bono cases for individuals, I can also say that Prairie State makes the volunteer experience so much easier than it would otherwise be.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Peoria

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase state funding for legal services. Yes, even in Illinois.

Role:  Volunteer & I volunteered to work on pro bono cases and clinics with Prairie State.
