Included in this list are organizations that provide free or low-cost legal services to victims of abuse and others who qualify.  Even if the organization does not have a lawyer available to represent you in court, you may want to ask if there is a lawyer who you can consult with to get advice.  Please note that we list the organizations by the county where the office is located – however, many offices may likely serve multiple counties.   We indicate the “counties served” whenever possible.  You can click the blue “View All” button to look through the complete list of organizations.
