LSA Launches Guardians of Justice Campaign in Mobile, Alabama

Legal Services Alabama is proud to announce the implementation of it Guardians of Justice Campaign in Mobile. The Guardians of Justice Campaign, which currently exists in Montgomery and Birmingham, was formed to educate the legal community at large of the LSA’s efforts to legally serve Alabama’s low-income population. The hope is that the community of legal professionals will realize the impact LSA has on lessening the load on the judicial system and thus be moved to contribute to LSA’s worthy cause.
Legal Services Alabama is a non-profit 501(c)(3) (not state-funded) providing free civil legal and law-related services to the approximately 740,000 low-income citizens of Alabama’s 67 counties. LSA offers representation in the areas of housing, family law involving domestic violence, public benefits, consumer law and community economic development; it also provides legal education to the low-income population at large.
Its programs serve the poorest of the poor, those who otherwise would not have access to legal help. LSA provides these services through its hotline network and ten offices located in Mobile, Dothan, Selma, Opelika, Montgomery, Tuscaloosa, Birmingham, Florence, Anniston and Huntsville. In 2006 alone, LSA opened 10,406 cases. Additionally, in 2006, 1563 callers gained assistance by the hotline network, which encompasses an elderly helpline, a disaster relief hotline and a hotline for Spanish speakers. During January-June 2007, 8583 callers were provided assistance by the hotline network.
In coordination with LSA’s statewide efforts, LSA Mobile aims to provide direct civil legal service to low-income families in LSA’s core areas.
