Our mission

To provide top rate legal services to the economically Disadvantaged of SWLA, and to utilize our legal skills and capabilities for the betterment of the community.

The Law Center provides reduced fee legal services to those who are technically above the poverty level (and hence, do not qualify for legal aid). Instead, we serve people who are "too rich" for legal aid. Law Center fees range from one-half to one-third of a private attorney. Fees are charged on an hourly-rate and are based on a sliding scale. We work out payment plans with our clients.


We are a local, private, not-for-profit law firm. We are a United Way Agency. Our funding comes from grants, private donations, and client fees.
