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. We receive 1,300+ requests for assistance per month. Legal Aid works to provide vulnerable individuals with quality legal advice and representation. 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 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.
