Legal Aid Services: What We Don’t Do
We do not take criminal or traffic cases. If you were charged with committing a crime, you will want a lawyer to represent you. If you cannot afford a lawyer, you may be eligible for a public defender, and can ask for that with the court.
If we cannot help you, there are other organizations that may be able to provide assistance. Click here to view other resources.
