The Legal Aid Society of Clevelands mission is to secure justice and resolve fundamental problems for those who are low income and vulnerable by providing high quality legal services and working for systemic solutions. Legal Aid represents clients in court and in administrative hearings. We also provide advice and brief assistance. Legal Aid handles cases that impact on basic needs such as health, shelter and safety, economics and education, and access to justice. Legal Aids attorneys practice in the areas of consumer rights, domestic violence, education, employment, family law, health, housing, foreclosure, immigration, public benefits, utilities, and tax. Those applying for Legal Aids help are asked about income, property owned, zip code, assets, family size, age, race, citizenship or immigration status.
