About Community Health Law Project

The essential mission of CHLP is to provide legal and advocacy services to New Jersey residents with disabilities. We serve consumers of mental health services, people with physical disabilities, HIV/AIDS, developmental disabilities, and visual impairments. Our attorneys and advocates represent clients in matters involving Social Security benefits, Welfare, food stamps, and other entitlements; housing habitability and landlord-tenant disputes; foreclosure defense; consumer protection and debt collection; child support and domestic violence; Medicaid, Medicare, and other health insurance issues.

Attorneys and advocates will provide representation and brief service in many civil law issues and in entitlement cases.  Assistance will be available in areas including:

  • Housing advocacy such as landlord-tenant disputes
  • Public entitlements, including eligibility for SSI, SSDI, public assistance, and food stamps
  • Medicaid, Medicare, and other healthcare issues such as managed care disputes
  • Child support, visitation, domestic violence
  • Barrier-free accessibility, American with Disabilities Act and New Jersey Law Against Discrimination matters
  • Surrogate decision making issues including wills, living wills, advance directives, powers of attorney, and uncontested guardianships (also limited guardianship and conservatorship)
