Lindsay Hanifan Childs, Esquire, of Vetrano|Vetrano & Feinman LLC has been appointed to the Board of Directors of Legal Aid of Southeastern Pennsylvania (“LASP”). She will serve a three-year term. LASP serves low-income and vulnerable individuals in Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery Counties by providing legal representation in a wide range of civil practice areas, including family law, housing, elder law and public benefits. The organization also seeks to provide legal education to the community and to alter local systems that lead to poverty.
Legal representation is provided both by staff attorneys employed by LASP, and by local attorneys who volunteer their time to support the LASP mission. Much of LASP’s community education and outreach is accomplished through partnerships with the county Bar Associations, other non-profit organizations and numerous educational institutions who all have in an interest making justice more accessible for all.
LASP was created in 2001 as a merger of the legal services programs in the four individual counties. During the 2014-2015 fiscal year, almost 17,000 individuals and their families received assistance from LASP. The organization recently expanded by opening a new office in Media, Delaware County. Other offices are located in Bristol, Doylestown, West Chester, Chester, Norristown and Pottstown.
