The Legal Aid Society of Hawaii created Partnership in Pro Bono to provide high quality, full representation in civil legal matters free of charge to low income and underserved individuals throughout the state of Hawaii.

The Legal Aid Society of Hawaii is the state's oldest and largest non-profit legal services provider. Each year, legal aid assists over 18,000 clients who would not otherwise be able to afford representation with their civil legal issues. Through partnership in pro bono, we aim to increase the number of clients served as well as to increase access to full representation in civil legal matters for low-income and working low-income individuals.
