Our Services

LAA provides services in the following areas:

  • child protection
  • education law
  • family law
  • housing law (including fair housing)
  • immigration
  • public benefits
  • disability rights
  • workers’ rights

We use a combination of individual representation, impact litigation, policy advocacy and community legal education to improve the lives of poor people and to increase access to justice.  (Please note: due to our limited resources we are not able to assist everyone who seeks our services with every case in these categories. Click here to learn more about the types of cases we handle, eligibility requirements and how to apply for legal assistance.)
