Welcome to Legal Aid

We provide civil legal assistance to persons in economic and social need in Lane County, Oregon. This includes people in poverty, many recipients of public benefits, and many persons who experience disabilities, as well as people 60 and over. People who need help with civil legal matters can visit or call our office in Eugene to apply.


There is no charge to apply for our assistance, and most of our services are provided free of charge. Together with Survivors Justice Center and Senior Law Service, we will do our best to get you the help you need. We also offer free literature to guide people in handling their own legal issues, and we are equipped to provide referrals to other resources where appropriate.

Lane County Legal Aid and Advocacy Center is a locally governed non-profit law firm with over 40 years of experience in serving the legal needs of Lane County's poor. As the area's oldest and best known provider of poverty law services, we are committed to protecting access to justice for our most vulnerable residents.

We receive funding from a variety of public and private sources. Lane County Legal Aid is grateful for all avenues of support, including these generous programs:
