Our Story

Good Samaritan Advocates is a group of pro-bono attorneys and other caring volunteers. Founded by The Law Firm of Gammon and Grange in 2006, we have provided free legal assistance and related services to low income neighbors in our clinics located in suburban Washington DC. We are a Christian Legal Aid organization, though we serve clients regardless of religious affiliation. We receive no government funds and are 100% supported by public donations.

 
 

We offer free basic legal advice

We Can:

  • Help clients understand their legal rights
  • Explain legal concepts related to legal issues
  • Explain documents or paperwork.
  • Provide advice on negotiating a dispute
  • Recommend action steps to resolve legal issues
  • Help clients prepare for self representation
  • Point you toward other resources
  • Pray with you and for you
