Who We Are

The Legal Aid Justice Center battles poverty and injustice by solving critical legal problems for individuals and communities.  Then we use what we learn from those efforts to identify, investigate, and attack systemic injustices. The Legal Aid Justice Center is committed to providing a full range of services to our clients, including services our federal and state governments choose not to fund.  We utilize a mix of zealous individual representation, group and class litigation, community organizing, policy advocacy, and media relations.
