Description

HOW WE HELP

At the Legal Assistance Center we believe everyone is entitled to access to justice. That means that everyone, regardless of resources, regardless of whether they can afford an attorney, is entitled to use the courts and solve legal problems. Our Justice system belongs to all of us and must work for each of us.
