WomensLaw regrets that these resources have not been updated recently.  However, please note that the legal content on the Know the Laws section is updated annually and the rest of the website is also updated regularly.

  • Legal Assistance

    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.

  • Law School Clinic Programs

    Student volunteers, supervised by attorneys, represent people who can't afford to hire a lawyer in a variety of cases. Contact the schools below for more information and to find out if they can take your case.

  • Lawyer Referral Services

    For those who do not qualify for free legal assistance, we link to the state’s Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service(s) for private attorneys.
