Acadiana Legal Service Corporation makes hope, dignity, and justice available primarily to low-income, disadvantaged, and other eligible residents through high quality and aggressive civil legal assistance and education.
We envision a state where low-income, disadvantaged, and other eligible residents have access to services and resources to meet their basic needs and where they can vindicate their legal rights and be treated fairly throughout the civil justice system. We will expand our visibility and influence in the community by identifying partnerships and developing alliances to deliver services which will enhance the lives and effectively address the needs of low-income and disadvantaged people. The community will recognize us for our excellence, courage, and compassion.
Acadiana Legal Service Corporation, incorporated in 1978, fights for the economically challenged in the most pressing civil legal issues and needs ensuring equal justice for all. We fight for fairness and equality in the justice system.
We provide free, specialized, civil legal services to low-income individuals and families across 42 Louisiana Parishes. We work every-day to assist domestic violence victims, stand for the rights of abused and neglected children, help preserve housing for hard-working families, prevent homelessness for people with disabilities and veterans, help protect elderly consumers, remove barriers to health care and so much more.
At any given time, ALSC is providing services to over 6,000 individuals, but there are more than 675,000 potentially eligible clients within our service area. So much more needs to be done. We will never stop fighting for equal justice for all!
