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.
