A new eviction resource center by Legal Action of Wisconsin offers legal services for families and individuals facing eviction in Dane County.
One UW professor found more than 2,500 people on average were evicted each year in the county between 2000 and 2015. Legal Action of Wisconsin has lawyers to assist tenants facing eviction in the Dane County Courthouse every Tuesday.
But Legal Action of Wisconsin attorney Heidi Wegleitner says people should contact her as soon as possible to get legal help with their court proceedings. She spoke with WORT Producer Nina Kravinsky about the project.
