Seeking Legal Help?

  • also contains a video and written guide to the type of help that is generally available from nonprofit legal aid programs, and options for those who don't qualify for free legal aid:
  •, the American Bar Association's online guide to legal help, also contains information about how to find a legal assistance in each state.
