Earlier this month, as part of its Unsung Legal Heroes series, Minnesota Lawyer magazine featured Sharon Jones, executive director of Legal Assistance of Dakota County (LADC).
LADC is a private, non-profit 501(c)3 organization that provides critical civil legal services to low-income families and individuals in Dakota County, MN. Founded in 1972, LADC focuses primarily on family law and routinely partners with the Dakota County District Court administration and the Dakota County Law Library to run the Dakota County Family Court Self-Help Center, a consumer law Clinic and regular community legal education clinics/presentations on a range of legal topics.
About her work at LADC, Jones said, “It is a privilege to do the work that I love, and to help people during the hardest and scariest parts of their lives. Also, I couldn’t do the work I do without the support of the local legal community – both in terms of our incredible volunteers and financial support from the local bar.” Read more in Unsung: Sharon Jones.
