About Legal Aid Society of the District of Columbia
The Legal Aid Society of the District of Columbia was created in 1932 with the goal of making justice real - in individual and systemic ways - for persons living in poverty in the District of Columbia. For more than 85 years, Legal Aid lawyers have provided a continuum of legal services to clients in the areas of domestic violence/family, housing, public benefits, and consumer law. In addition to providing direct representation, it also helps clients avoid unnecessary legal entanglements through outreach and education, and helps them resolve their own disputes with advice and other brief assistance. Legal Aid also works to identify systemic issues that have an impact beyond an individual client. In such cases, Legal Aid often seeks structural solutions - from changes in law or regulatory schemes to a reform of government or court practice - to benefit the client community. Legal Aid strives to make fair and equal access to justice possible for those who need it most.
