We are the state’s largest non-profit law firm providing free civil legal services to Wisconsin clients at the most vulnerable times in their lives. For more than 50 years, we’ve changed and improved lives by making sure the civil legal system works for everyone.
We believe everyone deserves to be treated with fairness and respect, and in fighting for what’s right and fair no matter how hard or complex. We believe access to justice is a vital civic issue and in the right to counsel in civil legal proceedings. We believe everyone deserves the highest-quality legal representation possible regardless of ability to pay.
We serve clients statewide from six offices staffed with nearly 80 experienced attorneys plus we have hundreds of volunteer attorneys who donate thousands of hours of civil legal service each year.
Together, we ensure the legal system better understands and serves the civil legal needs of all people.
Public and private sources, including the federally funded Legal Services Corporation, fund our work which strengthens and stabilizes communities especially those that have been systemically marginalized and underserved. We listen, we’re responsive, and we do what we say we will do.
We are honored, proud and committed to working for our clients.
