Access to Justice: Significant Increase in Eligible Tenants Who Accessed a Lawyer

Cleveland’s Right to Counsel promotes access to justice by significantly increasing number of tenants who access a lawyer.

Stout estimates Legal Aid represented between 60% and 80% of all households in Cleveland that were likely eligible for Right to Counsel. Prior to Right to Counsel, only 2% to 3% of all tenants had representation. Post Right to Counsel, representation has increased to 16%, which is a 433% increase since the inception of the partnership.
