Important Message from Acadiana Legal Service Corporation

While ALSC remains committed to providing high-quality legal aid, we are also concerned about the health and safety of our clients, staff and communities we serve.  Accordingly, we are temporarily modifying how we deliver services to prevent the spread of COVID-19 where possible.

  • All office lobbies are open. Masks are required by both visitors and staff at all times.
  • We are only able to handle a certain number of new cases each day, so if you are not already a client of ours with an open case please call to apply for our services instead of driving to our nearest office.
  • The office phone lines are open and we are taking calls, or you can also visit our website at www.la-law.org/get-help/ for resources with legal problems.
  • The Lake Charles Office is temporarily closed due to damages caused by the Mid-May flooding.  The phone lines are open and we are taking calls.
  • All outreach and education presentations have been cancelled until further notice.
  • If you have NON COVID-19 issues in the areas of Housing, Small Succession, Bankruptcy, Child Custody, Uncontested Divorce or Unemployment Benefits visit www.la-law.org and complete the Legal Aid Module, relative to your issue, at the bottom of the home page.

We thank you for your cooperation during this public health emergency.
