The Washington Medical-Legal Partnership works towards better health through legal advocacy.

Our mission is to promote better health outcomes by addressing the legal and social needs of patients and families. Washington Medical-Legal Partnership (MLP) helps people from under-served communities understand and secure their legal rights regarding safe housing, adequate schooling, medical needs and more. We partner with lawyers, doctors, social workers, and other medical staff to remove barriers to good health.
