“Legally changing one’s name can be an important symbolic step of entering a new chapter in life, but it also has important practical reasons when it comes to signing contracts and other legal documents,” said Jordan Stringer of Legal Aid Society, who is helping to organize the clinic. “We want to help demystify the legal process for those who want their name to reflect their identity.”
