Many on Eastern Shore without legal representation, interpreters

An article in the Easton Star-Democrat about a recent public hearing sponsored by the Maryland Justice Commission included comments by Upper Shore office staff attorney Rachel Wolpert. Both Wolpert and chief attorney Bill Leahy testified at the commission’s listening session held at the Wye River campus of Chesapeake College. “[Wolpert] said many low-income people do not have access to representation,” the article said. “Wolpert also said the area has an incredible need for interpreters.”
