Mike Gonring: Mobile Legal Clinic Takes Access to the Streets

If you’re a Milwaukee resident struggling to make ends meet by holding down two or three jobs, you have no time to go to a legal clinic downtown or at some other location. Nor can you afford to take time off from work to get to a distant clinic.

A solution to that dilemma is a bus transformed into the Milwaukee Justice Center’s Mobile Legal Clinic, opened in September 2013. The Justice Center is a collaborative endeavor of Marquette University Law School, the Milwaukee County Bar Association, and Milwaukee County.

The Mobile Legal Clinic opens one Saturday a month for four hours at various locations around Milwaukee County. It came into existence because attorneys Frank Daily and Julianna Ebert wanted to honor fellow Quarles & Brady partner Michael Gonring for his career-long pro bono service by donating funds to the law school to launch some sort of project.
