A fellowship of Christian lawyers and other volunteers who provide a free and unique combination of legal and spiritual help to the underprivileged, and instill the love of Christ in the legal community.
New Mexico Christian Legal Aid is an independent, multi-denominational ministry and 501(c)(3) charitable organization that primarily serves the Albuquerque Metro Area. We are Christian lawyers, law students, legal assistants, paralegals and other volunteers who provide pro bono legal and spiritual assistance to the homeless and needy during interview sessions at Noon Day Ministries, Albuquerque Rescue Mission, Good Shepherd Center, Victory Outreach Center and Joy Junction. See the Volunteers page for site information (click here).
In addition to providing one-on-one pro bono legal assistance, New Mexico Christian Legal Aid has expanded its services to provide Preventative Law and Community Legal Education seminars serving over 1500 persons each year. NMCLA volunteers encourage and support one another through prayer, training and mentor-ship, and fellowship events. (more…)
