Welcome to the Resource Center for The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland!

Legal Aid staff and volunteers provide community outreach and education in a variety of ways including brochures, informational stories, attending community events and making educational presentations.

Also, Legal Aid provides information and tools for people to resolve legal issues on their own without help from an attorney.  These tools can be found by clicking on the “Self Help” link to the left on this page.

More helpful information is also available in the form of FAQs, Brochures, and other resources on this website.  Please browse this Resource Center via the navigation bar at the left.  You can also see these same resources in various other pages of this website.

If you have a specific speaker or brochure request – please follow the links at the left to fill out a request form.

This website is meant to give you general information and not to give you specific legal advice. This information cannot take the place of advice from a lawyer. Each case is different and needs individual legal advice. You should contact a lawyer if you need representation or if you have questions.
