State Legal Assistance
To find the program nearest you, go to the above website and click on your state. The United States Congress established the Legal Services Corporation to provide low-income Americans access to civil legal aid. To carry out this responsibility, the Corporation pro-vides grants to approximately 179 local legal aid programs, which serve every county in the nation. These local programs offer legal assistance to financially eligible clients.

The Corporation itself does not offer legal aid directly. However, an LSC program in your area may be able to provide you with some assistance. This Directory lists program main offices only. Many programs also have branch offices, and the program in your area may be able to refer you to a branch office for assistance.
Free or Low Cost Legal Assistance in the U.S. by State -Research Links Attorneys, Bankruptcy, Child Support, Civil Procedure, Civil Rights, Consumer Courts/Case Law, Divorce, etc.

State Legal Assistance Developers
Every state has a Legal Assistance Developer who provides legal assistance for older persons who are in great economic or social need. Developers refer older adults to the appropriate legal providers, help elders through outreach and public education, and improve the quality of legal assistance for the elderly.
