Atlanta Legal Aid Society helps low income people meet basic needs through free civil legal services.
We assist people in legal cases that affect most basic needs: safe home, enough food to eat, a decent education, protection against fraud, and personal safety. Our clients have annual incomes below 200% of the federal poverty limit.
Our offices are located in downtown Atlanta, East Point, Decatur, Marietta, and Lawrenceville, as well as through our Health Law Partnership where attorneys are housed at Scottish Rite, Egleston and Hughes Spalding childrens hospitals.
Mission Statement: "To deliver legal services and legal education designed to improve the social, political, and economic conditions of low income persons; to serve as a catalyst for social change to benefit low income persons; to prepare and furnish information to low income persons about their rights; so as to provide full benefit, enjoyment, and protection of their legal, economic, political and social rights."
