We’re up!

A few months ago I announced the inaugural of this blog site.  It was designed to be an information source for folks on a variety of topic: law, health, government, policy, or anything else that impacted the community.

All of that presumed that I knew how to blog.  Sadly, I didn’t.  However, I recently went to blogging boot camp and have some of it down, so now I’m ready to begin. For those who responded to two posts without acknowledgement from us, I apologize.  Our bad etiquette was unintentional and we’ll do better as we move forward.

There will no doubt be a few bumps in the road but I’m sure we can overcome them.  Your patience as we skill up is greatly appreciated.  And it is our overriding task to provide content that honors your visit and time.

Thanks and on we go!

Welcome to the new RICLAPP Website

It is a great privilege to have you visit and I hope that you will find this site informative and useful. We are a non-profit public charity that provides civil legal services to low and modest income Rhode Islanders. We do not engage in criminal matters.
We have a small staff that does so much to further our mission. Over the past few years, we have resolved over 1000 civil legal matters per year. As you can see from our web pages, we accomplish this with a small dedicated staff of professionals, and also with a great assist from volunteer attorneys. We also rely on our community partner, Roger Williams University School of Law, to provide us with high quality law school students through the University’s externship program.
It is my great honor to serve with such a talented, highly motivated, and dedicated group of professionals. Rhode Island is fortunate to have them doing this work.
An organization like ours cannot exist without the support of legal providers in the community. While our list grows with each passing year, there are five
that I would like to publicly thank for being a resource over the years for us and, in some instances, for our clients:

  • Charles Pisaturo
  • Cindy Fogarty
  • Joe Daigle
  • Brian Fogarty
  • Kathy Paul and the Rhode Island Paralegal Association

We are a community based agency that relies on community support to advance our mission. The above professionals are just a sample of the many community collaborators that have joined with us to aid those under-served neighbors in each Rhode Island community.
Once again, thank you for visiting our website and please come back to this page, which will be updated frequently with issues of import for all of us.
