Justice For All Campaign
According to our constitution, people charged with a crime must have a court appointed attorney if they cannot afford to hire an attorney on their own. There is no such right for people needing legal assistance for matters like domestic violence, child custody, housing, employment, or health care. I have worked for Legal Aid of Western Ohio and Advocates for Basic Legal Equality for more than 15 years. My colleagues work to meet the legal needs of low-income people by providing free legal help. Help us build our resources so we can help even more of our friends and neighbors who need our services.
