Legal Aid Services of Oregon (LASO) is a statewide non-profit organization that provides access to legal help for people to protect their livelihoods, their health, and their families. As a civil legal aid program, LASO assures fairness for all in the justice system, regardless of how much money you have. Through our own staff attorneys and hundreds of volunteers, LASO gives free legal help to thousands of low-income and elderly clients each year in matters relating to their physical safety, access to food and shelter, and other critical legal needs. LASO can help with cases such as family law cases involving domestic violence, housing cases, like repair issues, housing discrimination, and help with government housing programs, government benefits issues, like SNAP (food stamps), Oregon Health Plan and unemployment insurance benefits, senior law issues, like problems with long term care facilities and elder abuse, consumer issues, like debt collection and bankruptcy and employment problems, like unpaid wages and discrimination. Not all offices help with all issues. Call your local office for more information.
