About the Legal-Ease Law Clinic

DuPage County nonprofit law clinic

Nonprofit Illinois Law Firm for Family Law, Immigration, and Misdemeanor Defense in DuPage County

The Legal-Ease Law Clinic was founded in 2018 by Attorney Reese Krajniak, with the purpose of making legal services accessible to everyone regardless of their income level. Specifically, Legal-Ease fills the gap between free Legal Aid, which is usually available only to those with incomes at or below 150 percent of the federal poverty level, and full-price legal services, which come at an average rate of over $300 per hour in the Chicago area. Our attorneys bring extensive knowledge and years of legal experience to their practice, and we are committed to giving our clients the best possible representation in cases involving:

A Nonprofit DuPage County Law Firm

The Legal-Ease Law Clinic is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, so all of our income is dedicated to providing quality legal services for people in need. Our founding attorney, Reese Krajniak, has cultivated a passion for pro bono legal service stemming from her time in law school more than ten years ago, and she and all of our attorneys have pledged a portion of their billable time each week to practice for our clinic while charging reduced rates to our clients.

As a nonprofit organization, we are open to donations from members of the community who share our passion and goals. Your contributions allow us to grow and continue serving our clients, and your donations are tax-deductible. If you prefer to donate your time, we encourage you to get involved as a volunteer. We are thrilled to work with you whether you are a legal professional or simply someone who wants to contribute positively to your community.

Legal Services For Those Who Need Them Most

We recognize that in many cases, those who are least able to afford quality legal representation are the people who need it the most. Without an attorney to advise and stand up for you, you may make costly mistakes throughout the legal process that can put additional stress on your financial situation and may lead to lasting damage for you and your family. We want to ensure that the cost of legal services is not an obstacle to your well-being.

We are especially passionate about helping people who may feel disadvantaged by the legal system. If you are struggling to afford a divorce attorney because you relied on your spouse's income, if you are an immigrant concerned about how legal trouble can affect your status, or if you are concerned about bias in the criminal justice system leading to harsher penalties than you deserve, the Legal-Ease Law Clinic is ready to take your case and help you fight for your rights.

Understanding Our Fee Structure

We are committed to providing our services at a price you can afford. We offer free initial consultations so we can learn about your case and you can learn more about how we can help. We then work with each client personally to determine an affordable hourly fee using a sliding scale based on your monthly income and the number of people in your household.
