Generally, people receiving income-based public benefits such as AFDC, SSI and Food Stamps may qualify for legal assistance from Legal Aid.
However, Federal law prevents Legal Aid from representing anyone in criminal cases, including DUI cases and minor traffic violations.
If Legal Aid cannot take your case, they may be able to refer you to a private attorney for a free one-half hour consultation and the private attorney may charge you a reduced fee.
If you have any questions about whether or not Legal Aid can help you with your legal concerns, contact Legal Aid at 524-3660.
