Legal Services Corporation of Delaware, Inc. is a non-profit organization that offers legal advice and assistance to people who cannot afford a private attorney. LSCD works to give low-income individuals an opportunity to exercise the rights they have been granted by law. We are not a political or religious organization. LSCD handles only civil cases. We do not handle any criminal matters. The exact amount of income depends on the size of your family, but if you qualify for food stamps, welfare, or other public benefits, chances are that you will be eligible for our services.
The attorneys and paralegals of Legal Services of Delaware will explain what your rights are under the law, they will help you decide what you can do to address your particular problem, they will help you solve your problem, if possible, by intervening on your behalf before government agencies and businesses and they will even help you take your case to court if necessary.
