Founded in 1988, the AIDS Law Project of Pennsylvania is a nonprofit public-interest law firm providing free legal assistance to people living with HIV and those affected by the epidemic. We are still the nation’s only independent public-interest law firm dedicated to people living with HIV. We serve all of Pennsylvania and Southern New Jersey from our offices in Philadelphia and Camden County, NJ, educating the public about AIDS-related legal issues, training case management professionals to become better advocates for their clients, and working at local, state and national levels to achieve fair laws and policies.
We are committed to breaking the physical and linguistic barriers that often impede access to legal services. We make home and hospital visits to clients too ill to travel to our offices. Our bilingual staff serve our clients in the language they feel most comfortable speaking.
