Empowerment

The Legal Aid Society provides a wide range of essential legal services to low-income families who, without us, would have no other access to legal help. We offer legal assistance for cases of domestic violence, family and elder law, and housing and consumer issues. We also hold workshops to educate people of their rights in these areas. All Legal Aid Society clients have access to the full scope of counseling and other services offered by Metropolitan Family Services.
