Legal Aid of Nebraska makes justice happen for low-income Nebraskans. As the only statewide civil legal aid provider, almost 300,000 Nebraskans are eligible for our services. We provide disadvantaged individuals with the same legal advice and representation that more fortunate people take for granted, benefiting the community long-term. We tackle inequality and increase opportunity for Nebraskans by helping clients navigate their way through a complex and often intimidating legal system.
One such client was facing an unlawful eviction, and a Legal Aid attorney helped her avoid eviction and stay in her home. The client wrote a wonderful note to our office after her case was closed: "I would not have made it through this nightmare without your help. Legal Aid is a bright shining star in the dark void of injustice for the low-income. Thank God for you folks."
