Acadiana Legal Service Corporation is a private, non-profit law firm. It provides free legal assistance in civil cases to those who could not otherwise afford it. A person becomes a client of ours by applying for our assistance, being accepted as a new client and signing a retainer. In order to be accepted, you must be financially eligible or 60 years old or older and reside in our service area. Financial eligibility is determined by comparing family size, annual income and other family resources to the annual poverty line as published by the federal government. This process starts by contacting any one of our offices to apply.Once you become one of our clients, your problem is assigned to one of our attorneys or paralegals based on the nature of your legal problem and availability of staff.
