Your involvement directly benefits clients like Bianca, whose experience with LAS’s Domestic Violence team demonstrates the critical importance of legal aid services.


“I didn’t know where to go, what to do, who to talk to,” shared Bianca in a conversation with her attorney, Elizabeth Koziol, during the 2020 Equal Access to Justice Award Luncheon. “You were my superwoman, you came in and saved the day. You were patient with me, you listened to everything I had to say, you understood what was going on. You said no, that’s not fair, you don’t deserve that.”
