IF YOU NEED HELP, THERE IS HOPE.

If you are experiencing a crisis but can’t afford a lawyer, there is help. We are fortunate to live in a region that has many dedicated nonprofit organizations that provide free legal assistance to people of all backgrounds. If you reside in King County, this website is a resource for you.

WHAT IS CIVIL LEGAL AID?

Sometimes difficult things happen in life, like losing a job, facing eviction from a home or experiencing a trauma like domestic violence or sexual assault. Many people having these experiences could benefit from legal help, but they don’t know where to turn or can’t afford a lawyer.

 

Civil legal aid is a combination of free services and resources that nonprofit organizations provide to people who can’t afford legal help otherwise. A lawyer can help you navigate the confusing legal system to see if there is a legal solution that can help you improve your situation. Civil legal aid is not the same as criminal representation. This is not intended to be a resource for people who are being accused of a crime.

 

Everyone should have legal help when facing a crisis. Find out if civil legal aid can help you. Contact an organization in King County today, or call 2-1-1 to get help today.
