Consumer

We advocate on behalf of disadvantaged clients who have been targeted by merchants and lenders. Our clients are people who are sold defective cars, elderly homeowners pressured into risky mortgages, and payday loan borrowers who face abusive and illegal collection practices. In addition to our client representation, Legal Aid participates in local, state, and national legal reform activities, such as the Virginia Partnership to Encourage Responsible Lending (VaPERL).
