Legal Aid helps people with low-income. Households with income less than 200% of the federal poverty guidelines may qualify.
In addition to inquiring about income, we prioritize cases where people face significant risk and Legal Aid attorneys can make a positive difference. Legal Aid has limited resources and cannot help everyone. All requests and referrals for Legal Aid services are evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
For instance, in 2024 - a household of 4 people could qualify for Legal Aid with an income at or below $62,400. Current (2024) poverty levels can be found by clicking here.
Again, because of limited resources - income is not the only criteria for a new Legal Aid case. Contact us to see if your case is one we can handle.
