Legal Resources

The Legal Aid Society of Columbus has the goal of providing free guidance and assistance to low-income or elderly individuals to help them navigate the complex legal system in the United States. Along with providing civil legal aid, they can also help advocate to combat injustice and unfairness to help individuals or families exit poverty. The services the attorneys provide are limited to providing advice, information, and making referrals. They have an intake line where you can call and they would help guide you through the process of receiving assistance. Their services are currently only being offered virtually (on the phone). You can receive more information about the different services that are offered by visiting the website or by calling their general phone number.
