The MJC, a public service project created by the Milwaukee Bar Association in partnership with Marquette University Law School and Milwaukee County, utilizes volunteers to address the unmet legal needs of Milwaukee County's low-income unrepresented litigants.
Through volunteer lawyers, paralegals, and Marquette University law students, the MJC operates a self-help desk to assist in completion of legal forms as well as legal clinics offering information and referral services. The center's goal is to provide basic legal information and referrals.
The MJC is on track to provide services to over 10,000 clients this year. The Center recently expanded its hours of operation to service increasing demands. Hours and service information is available on the MJC website, http://milwaukee.gov/
Attorney Hupy states, "There are times when duty calls and we must step up to the plate for the public good to fulfill our professional obligations. I have pledged to donate $100,000.00 to the Milwaukee Justice Center so the less fortunate can have access to the legal system." Hupy was recognized by Jim Temmer, Executive Director of the Milwaukee Bar Association, for his generous personal pledge as well as for his leadership in promoting the public service effort.
