Community Links/Resources

The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland is nonprofit law firm focused on serving the needs of the low-income community.

Legal Aid works in partnership with many organizations in Northeast Ohio who serve similar populations. Additionally, if Legal Aid is not able to assist an individual with a legal problem – a referral may be made to a local bar association or other legal resource.
