If you can’t afford a lawyer, you often can’t afford justice.
This lack of justice threatens the most basic human needs of many low-income people: food, shelter, health care and personal safety.
Legal Action of Wisconsin provides free legal services to low-income people who would be denied justice without our help.
We deliver top-quality, personalized legal service to each and every client we serve. We also emphasize legal work with a broader reach, aimed at systemic changes that will help more people achieve a decent quality of life.
Our priority practice areas and special projects include: Benefits and Health programs, Family Law, Housing Law, Licenses, Criminal Records & Employment, SeniorLAW, Migrant Farmworkers, Social Security and the DOES Project.
“It is high time that we take action to eliminate the fundamental unfairness that occurs every day in Wisconsin courts because poor people do not have lawyers, and can’t defend themselves,” John Ebbott, Executive Director of Legal Action of Wisconsin.
