Stay informed about North Penn Legal Service activity and advocacy work.

HARRISBURG — As part of its desire for wider participation in the groups which provide it advice and recommendations, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court is undertaking a new initiative making it easier for people to express interest in being appointed to court advisory panels.

NPLS learned this week that Pete Macky - a true colleague and friend had passed away suddently.  Pete retired from NPLS in May 2016 after spending 42 years working as the Managing Attorney at our Sunbury office.  Retirement did not keep Pete away from the clients and staff that he worked with each day.  He continued to serve NPLS as a volunteer.

This summer, one of NPLS volunteer law school students shared his view on the work that NPLS' Advocates do on behalf of low-income people as well as his own experience from the last 10 weeks.
 

NPLS has posted the recently revised Self-Help Handbook for Tenants in the Resource Library on our website.  The handbook is available in both English and Spanish.  Links to both handbooks are included below.  The handbook is posted as one document and also separated by chapter.  If you live in the Lehigh Valley and would like a printed copy of either handbook, please call NPLS at 610-317-8757.  A copy will be mailed to you.  

English Self-Help Handbook for Tenants:

NPLS is pleased to announce that we have received a grant from the Scranton Area Community Foundation to fund office space in downtown Scranton so that our advocates can meet with clients before their court hearings.
