You must meet income and resource limits to be eligible for our services but our experienced intake staff will help you determine eligibility and find the right attorney to help you resolve your problem.
The Legal Aid Society of Columbus does not charge for its services but you may be required to pay certain court costs. If we must refer you to a private attorney, there may be a reduced fee. If The Legal Aid Society of Columbus cannot help you with your problem, we will refer you to an agency that may be more suited to your needs. If you have a problem that is not listed on our services page, please call us anyway; we may have a service that can help you or know of just the right program or private attorney that will.

- Loss or denial of public benefits
- Unemployment compensation
