What We Do

Legal Aid of Nebraska makes equal justice happen for low-income Nebraskans as the only statewide civil legal aid provider offering free services. Almost 300,000 Nebraskans are eligible for assistance. Legal Aid works to provide disadvantaged individuals with the same quality legal advice and representation that more fortunate people take for granted. We tackle inequality and increase opportunity for low-income Nebraskans by helping clients navigate their way through a complex and often intimidating legal system.

Without Legal Aid, justice would truly be denied for those who need it most. Legal Aid provides a full range of civil legal services, from brief advice and counsel, to assistance with self-representation, to direct representation in court. Families fighting wrongful evictions, women trapped in abusive relationships, children needing a stable home, wage earners losing what little they have to abusive debt collectors, veterans denied rightfully earned benefits - they all need legal help to solve these life-threatening problems. If low-income Nebraskans have access to a lawyer to protect their rights or to enforce the power of the law, "equal justice" is more than just words, it is reality.
