Artist seeking lawyer?
Are you an artist (painter, musician, sculptor, printmaker, dancer, puppeteer, actor, etc., etc.)?
Do you have a legal issue related to your livelihood as an artist?
Well, Maryland Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts has been helping Maryland artists with legal issues since 1985. If you think you need a lawyer you should check out our Pro Bono Legal Referral Service by clicking "Get a Lawyer".
You can also check out our upcoming Art Law Clinics. At our clinics, artists can receive a $5 30 minute consultation with an attorney to discuss their short-form legal issue.
Through the above legal services, as well as our lectures, seminars, and publications, we are proud to continue the tradition of "left-brain support for right-brain people" that we started three decades ago.
