How Do I Qualify?
How Do I Get Help?

The Legal Aid Society was founded in 1949 with a mission of providing equal access to our judicial system to the disadvantaged children, families and individuals living in Palm Beach County. At its inception, Legal Aid employed one attorney who provided free consultation and advice to low-income individuals and referred all litigation matters to pro bono attorneys. Today Legal Aid employs a staff of 97 and operates 17 legal projects serving all of Palm Beach County.

Each year through its in-house staff and Pro Bono Project, Legal Aid provides more than 7,000 disadvantaged residents with no-cost legal assistance as well as a variety of community education and outreach programs. Legal Aid's advocacy has improved the lives and living conditions of victims of domestic violence, abused, neglected and orphaned children, frail and exploited elders, the physically challenged, HIV-infected individuals, new immigrants and entire communities.
