Cooper & Bilbrey, P.C. is proud to announce its participation in Charleston’s Homeless Court program, called the Homeless Justice Project. The firm provides pro bono assistance to clients that qualify for the Court program.
About two years ago, the Charleston Homeless Court, located at One80 Place, was established to provide an alternative to criminal court for an individual charged with certain minor crimes when specific qualifications are met. The program provides a helping hand in addressing the underlying issues that led to a person’s homelessness and assists them in finding a permanent home.
Recently, Attorney Bilbrey of the firm successfully represented our first Homeless Court client resulting in a dismissal of his criminal charge. The client advantageously completed the Court program and for the first time in about eight years found himself in a residence, a place he now calls “home.”
