2014 Dan Bradley Fellow
From 2014 Fellow Sylvia Tsai:
My internship at Legal Services of Northern California (LSNC) focuses on the Foreclosure Prevention Advocacy Project that assists homeowners and tenants facing the effects of foreclosure. The project is based in the Sacramento office, however, we work with clients and advocates in all of LSNC’s 23 counties, a lot of which are rural areas. A daily routine of the project is to conduct client intakes, either by phone or in person. Our clients come to LSNC for assistance from various counties of northern California, such as Chico, El Dorado, Eukiah, Eureka, and Placer county, to name just a few. Besides client intake, I write demand letters and work on legal research on issues related to foreclosure, social security income garnishment, as well as laws related to breach of contract civil claims. Later on this summer, I also expect to be preparing court pleadings and develop “Know Your Rights” legal education workshops on foreclosure issues and related consumer debt issues. The workshops will target communities that have the least access to legal services, including people who are low-income, geographically isolated, limited-English proficient, elderly or disabled.
