Legal Aid of Nebraska makes justice happen for low-income Nebraskans. As the only statewide civil legal aid provider, almost 300,000 Nebraskans are eligible for our services. Legal Aid works to provide disadvantaged individuals with the same legal advice and representation that more fortunate people take for granted, benefiting the Lincoln area community in the long-term. We tackle inequality and increase opportunity for low-income Nebraskans by helping clients navigate their way through a complex and often intimidating legal system.
Without Legal Aid, justice would truly be denied for those who need it most. A level playing field is absolutely essential to the American system of justice. To help accomplish this, Legal Aid provides a full range of civil legal services, from brief advice and counsel, to assistance with self-representation, to direct representation in legal forums large and small. We make justice happen for thousands of low-income Nebraskans, and achieve outcomes that help them address the causes and effects of their poverty.
