Legal Services

Through the generosity of Cape attorneys who donate their time, WE CAN offers free legal services to low and moderate income women, including one-to-one sessions with an attorney and legal workshops facilitated by an attorney.

The attorney was very patient and knowledgeable and took time to explain things I didn’t know. I learned options I didn’t even know I had.
