Debtor Assistance Project
|Intake hours||Debtors may call Monday through Friday. Court business hours of operation are 8:00 a.m. through 4:00 p.m.|
The Debtor Assistance Project ("DAP") is a legal clinic that is a partnership between the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Maryland and various members of the Maryland legal community. This program provides debtors with an opportunity to meet, one-on-one, with a volunteer bankruptcy attorney for a free half-hour consultation. The DAP provides legal advice to individuals without an attorney by answering their questions about bankruptcy, including how bankruptcy may be used to help prevent foreclosure. The DAP cannot provide an attorney to complete your paperwork for you or represent you. Easton and Cumberland currently offer one day per month sign up.
