Prevent eviction judgement or involuntary move

Legal Aid avoided eviction for tenants in 90% of cases since Right to Counsel began. In 2023, 81% of people helped through Right to Counsel prevented an eviction or an involuntary move.

“Avoid eviction” in this context means that an eviction judgment was avoided. This does not necessarily mean residents remained in their home. A portion of the Cleveland Right to Counsel clients who were seeking to move, did move out of their home. However, these moves were voluntary, and disruption was minimized because of representation.
