Maryland Center for Legal Assistance (MCLA)

A wholly-owned subsidiary of Maryland Legal Aid, the Maryland Center for Legal Assistance does not receive funds from the Legal Services Corporation. Through a contract with the Administrative Office of the Courts, MCLA operates the District Court Self-Help Resource Centers in Baltimore City, Glen Burnie, Upper Marlboro, and Salisbury and the Maryland Courts Self-Help Centers in Annapolis and Frederick.

The Self-Help Centers deal with a wide range of civil legal matters, including landlord-tenant, consumer matters such as debt collection and credit card cases, child support, and criminal record expungements to remove barriers to obtaining housing, employment, and child custody.
