Community Legal Aid (CLA), a non-profit legal services program providing free civil legal
assistance to eligible low-income and elderly clients in central and western Massachusetts, seeks
two attorneys to work for six to seven months (with a possibility of extension) on foreclosure
matters for at-risk homeowners. The attorneys will assess homeowner cases for fair lending
violations, file cases for individual homeowners to prevent foreclosure, assist in the loan
modification process, and help victims of mortgage rescue scams. In addition, the attorneys will
engage in intensive community outreach and education on fair lending, mortgage rescue
schemes, and foreclosure defense strategies. The attorneys will also assist in the preparation of
periodic grant reports. It is anticipated that one attorney will be based in CLA’s Worcester office
and one attorney will be based in CLA’s Springfield office, but the attorneys will also spend time
in the program’s other offices in central and western Massachusetts as clients’ needs dictate.

QUALIFICATIONS: Admission to Mass. Bar, or eligibility to sit for next Mass. Bar
examination, or entitlement to practice under a Mass. practice rule is required. Experience in
foreclosure prevention work desirable. Fluency in Spanish desirable.
