About the DuPage Legal Aid Foundation

The DuPage Legal Aid Foundation was founded in 1975 and since that time, has been committed to helping clients in need by offering pro bono services. To do this, the Foundation relies on support from DuPage County, the State of Illinois Lawyers Trust Fund, the Eighteenth Judicial Circuit, and the DuPage County Bar Association, along with other sponsors and donors.

The Foundation mainly assists clients with the family law issues they are facing. The attorneys that provide free legal help do so not only in the courtroom, but also by providing counsel during meetings with clients. Every year, the Foundation recognizes the outstanding attorneys that have provided support through their Pro Bono Award, and after just a quick look at Attorney Siedlarz’s background, it is easy to see why she was the recipient this year.
