Free Legal Help and Assistance

Every year thousands of poor individuals and needy families seek assistance and the valuable legal skills of pro bono attorneys in a variety of issues ranging from drafting of power of attorneys and simple wills to more complex matters such as: bankruptcy and divorce.

Most legal aid clinics do not make appointments. Services are rendered on a “first come first serve basis.” Pro bono attorneys are not able to assist with criminal charges. If you have a criminal case and can not afford a lawyer, contact the Public Defenders office in your area.
