The North Suburban Legal Aid Clinic will relocate to 3500 Western Avenue, Unit #2 in Highland Park, on Monday, June 28, 2021, and be fully operational on Thursday, July 1, 2021.
The Clinic will occupy a full floor in an easy to access office building which will include a meeting room and space to accommodate our growing staff, visitors, and clients. The Clinic will now be able to more fully accommodate clients in need of confidential meeting space. The location includes ample parking, direct access to PACE bus and Union Pacific North Train Line, easy access to US41 North, and a bike station.
“To best serve our clients, accommodate our explosive growth, and ensure that we continue to provide access to justice to those in need in suburban Cook County and throughout Lake County, the Clinic is pleased to be moving to larger and more modern office space that encourages internal and external collaboration, and is conveniently located in the heart of our geographic service area,” stated Executive Director Susan Shulman. “Our relocation is an example of the type of thoughtful and strategic planning that we undertake with every decision we make as we work to serve individuals and families in need of free legal services.”
The Clinic has occupied space at 491 Laurel Avenue in Highland Park since March 2018. Its current lease expired in March 2020. The Clinic began the process of considering options for a relocation in late 2020 while working with pro-bono real estate professional Susan Silver at Millennium Properties. Multiple locations were considered by the Board of Directors and a lease was signed in June 2021.
