Pro Bono Program
Thousands of Marylanders with disabilities contact DRM each year seeking legal assistance. Although our dedicated staff does its best to meet the demand, our partnerships with the private bar are critical to augmenting scare resources and allowing us to serve more people who need help. Our pro bono referrals benefit low-income individuals with disabilities and all cases are screened for merit. Clients come from throughout the state and we attempt to match attorneys with cases they find most convenient and interesting. DRM provides excellent training, materials and ongoing technical assistance.
