Important Announcement Regarding COVID-19

In order to ensure the safety of our volunteers, clients, and the community through the COVID-19 pandemic, we are suspending in-person clinics, classes, and in-person on-boarding with VLP clients. Advice clinics already scheduled and newly scheduled will be converted to phone sessions. The VLP is continuing to process applications via CLEAR and our website. Please contact the VLP with any questions. 

Keep tabs on the changes to the WA courts due to COVID-19 at courts.wa.gov.

Thank you for your patience, and stay well!

Mike Cressey

On the 3rd Monday of each month, Mike dedicates his morning to helping individuals on the Unlawful Detainer docket as part of the VLP’s Housing Justice Project (HJP).

Mike was introduced to the VLP shortly after he moved to Washington. He found that the HJP was not only “a great way to meet the judges in a new town” but also “a unique opportunity to make a difference in the lives of folks experiencing our justice system one step away from literally being thrown out on the street.”
