Legal help that changes lives:
For 100 years, Legal Aid has worked in pursuit of helping Minnesota’s most vulnerable citizens gain access to their basic rights for safety, shelter, food, health care and education. And with the support of hundreds of Minnesotans, we’ve had the privilege to change lives along the way.
Dedicated to protecting rights and improving lives.
Our lawyers give a voice to those who may not otherwise be heard by providing the highest quality legal help to our clients, who are often among the most vulnerable families and individuals in the community. Beyond that, we seek changes in policies and systems that ease the way for many others. And we use technologies to more efficiently serve our clients and work with the judicial system. Our volunteers work to give our most vulnerable citizens a fighting chance; our donors make it all possible with much needed financial support — and together, we make a difference every day.
Protecting rights, improving lives:
Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid provides free civil legal services to people with low incomes in central Minnesota through offices in Minneapolis, St. Cloud and Willmar. Our experienced staff assist clients with a variety of legal issues. Services range from educating clients about their rights, to advocating on their behalf and representing clients in court.
The Minnesota Disability Law Center (MDLC) provides free civil legal assistance to individuals with disabilities statewide on legal issues related to their disabilities.
Moving justice forward:
Legal Aid’s policy advocates champion a wide range of issues that impact thousands of Minnesotans every year. We are the voice for the voiceless in the legislature, and we bring highly specialized technical skills to bear at all stages of the legislative process.
