Legal Aid attorneys, advocates, and support staff provide direct and impactful assistance to the most vulnerable in our community facing legal crises such as eviction, domestic violence, abuse and neglect, loss of benefits, immigration problems, foreclosure, education issues, and more.

Legal Aid provides a full range of legal services to our client community. We represent clients in civil legal cases, as well as carry out advocacy for low-income groups. We participate with social services agencies, medical providers, and others to improve programs affecting low-income people.
