Legal Experts

This website is a project of Philadelphia Legal Assistance and partner organizations in Pennsylvania that support workers. The site is intended to be a comprehensive resource for workers navigating unemployment benefits in Pennsylvania. 

As a collective of organizations in the Keystone state, we strive to provide resources and information to workers so that they can advocate for and fairly access their right to benefits. 

All information on the site has been provided by Philadelphia Legal Assistance.  These resources are not intended as legal advice.

Philadelphia Legal Assistance’s mission is to enforce and protect the rights of individuals and families by providing accessible, creative and high quality legal assistance and working collaboratively for systemic change.


LASP’s mission is to provide quality legal representation to low-income and vulnerable people in Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery Counties, to empower them to solve problems without legal representation through legal education and increased access to the courts, and to change community practices and systems that cause or aggravate poverty.
