Legal Aid for low-income Oregonians

What is Legal Aid?

Civil legal aid ensures fairness in the justice system. It provides essential services to low-income and vulnerable Oregonians who are faced with legal emergencies.

When low-income Oregonians lack the resources for needed legal help, they are effectively shut out of the justice system. To the average person, our legal system is a maze. That’s why lawyers are trained to guide their clients through the system. Legal aid provides:

  • free civil legal services to low-income and elderly Oregonians;
  • brochures, court forms, and self-help materials to help people navigate our justice system;
  • a website with accessible legal information available to all Oregonians; and
  • resources to help stabilize families and prevent a further slide into poverty.

Our Statement of Solidarity

Legal Aid stands in solidarity with the Black community.

We denounce the brutal killing of George Floyd and all Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color (BIPOC) at the hands of the police and others who oppress them, whether in Minnesota, Oregon or anywhere in our nation.

As a legal aid organization, our mission is to achieve justice for the low-income communities of Oregon by providing a full range of the highest quality civil legal services. We emphasize the right of our clients to decide the solutions that we pursue for the issues they face, and our clients have long told us that racial discrimination is a critical barrier preventing them from escaping poverty. We are responsible to our clients to work to dismantle systemic racism and white supremacy as we fight for economic justice on their behalf.

Legal aid lawyers and staff across the state will continue to work together to bring equity, justice, and integrity into our communities and our legal system.
