Eviction Defense Project





Legal Action of Wisconsin's Eviction Defense Project (EDP) is court-based, FREE legal aid for low-income tenants who are facing eviction.  


At the EDP, eligible clients can obtain FREE legal aid with their evictions, including:

• Brief legal advice 
• Settlement assistance
• Document drafting
• Limited scope in-court representation 


The EDP has locations in Milwaukee and Dane Counties:


Milwaukee EDP

901 N. 9TH ST., Room 406

Volunteer Hours: 12:30PM-4:00PM

EDP representation is limited in scope, meaning that volunteer attorneys are obligated only for their scheduled shift.  Unless the volunteer elects to take a case on for a longer term, there is no extended representation required and the representation will terminate at the close of the day.  


If you are interested in volunteering at EDP, please complete the PDF below.  A Legal Action staff member will be in touch soon.  (Housing law expert attorneys are onsite or available over the phone each afternoon to support volunteers.)
