Our Clients Say…

Thank You!

My family and I were able to clearly understand everything going on and make informed decisions based on advice from Legal Aid.


I am no longer tied to an abusive and violent husband. My children and I can start a new life.


Everyone was so helpful. My questions were always answered and I was kept in the loop about everything that was happening. They made everything much less stressful. They were just great and my community is lucky to have Legal Aid.

Happy Ending

We were able to adopt our grandson and now we know he is in a safe environment in our home.


Not having to pay for services because I couldn’t have afforded them and would have been left without an attorney.

I mattered

To be honest, the way you treated me, like I really mattered, and the belief you showed for me and in me will not be forgotten.
