We are here to make a difference.

Our attorneys, staff, and volunteers handle civil legal matters for Minnesota’s most vulnerable people for no charge. With expertise and compassion, we work to provide basic legal protections so our clients can achieve security, self-sufficiency, and access to opportunity. In addition to direct legal representation, we work with policy makers, advocating equal rights and equal protections under the law.

Support our work

Legal Aid could not exist without the generous support of volunteers, community partners, and financial supporters like you. Our federal and state support does not keep pace with the rapidly growing need for legal services. Your contributions are critical to providing access to justice for our neighbors who cannot afford a lawyer.
