Legal help that changes lives.

Dedicated to protecting rights and improving lives.

Our lawyers give a voice to those who may not otherwise be heard by providing the highest quality legal help to our clients, who are often among the most vulnerable families and individuals in the community. Beyond that, we seek changes in policies and systems that ease the way for many others. And we use technologies to more efficiently serve our clients and work with the judicial system. Our volunteers work to give our most vulnerable citizens a fighting chance; our donors make it all possible with much needed financial support — and together, we make a difference every day.
