    Legal Services

    Statewide Legal Services of Connecticut
    Statewide Legal Services is a telephone hotline helping callers with legal problems in Connecticut. We talk to callers about many different non-criminal legal problems. Some of the problems we can talk to you about include family, employment, public benefits, housing and consumer problems like bankruptcy. There is no charge for our services, but we can only help people with very low income.


    Connecticut Network for Legal Aid
    Connecticut’s Legal Aid programs worked together and created this web site, www.ctlawhelp.org, to help people with very limited income find help for their legal problems. This web site will try to answer your questions and give you legal information and tools to help you represent yourself. The web sites below are part of our network.

    Legal Services
    LSC is the single largest funder of civil legal aid for low-income Americans in the nation. Established in 1974, LSC operates as an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation that promotes equal access to justice and provides grants for high-quality civil legal assistance to low-income Americans. LSC distributes about 95 percent of its total funding to 135 independent nonprofit legal aid programs with more than 900 offices throughout the nation. LSC promotes equal access to justice by awarding grants to legal services providers through a competitive grants process; conducting compliance reviews and program visits to oversee program quality and compliance with statutory and regulatory requirements as well as restrictions that accompany LSC funding; and by providing training and technical assistance to programs. LSC encourages programs to leverage limited resources by partnering and collaborating with other funders of civil legal aid, including state and local governments, IOLTA, access to justice commissions, the private bar, philanthropic foundations, and the business community. The Corporation is headed by a bipartisan board of directors whose 11 members are appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate.
