According to a recent study, 75% of those eligible for our services will have at least one legal problem annually requiring assistance. Yet our resources are limited.

Legal Aid Society practices on the principle that all citizens are due equal representation under the law. Sadly, the demand for services far exceeds the resources to provide them. In our 48-county service area alone, over 440,000 individuals live at or beneath the federal poverty line, resulting in one Legal Aid Society attorney for every 13,000 citizens who might need our services. Legal Aid Society is forced to turn away at least one person for every one who requests assistance.

Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee and the Cumberlands advocates for fairness and justice under the law. The non-profit law firm offers free civil legal representation and educational programs to help people in its 48-county service area receive justice, protect their well-being and support opportunities to overcome poverty. Legal Aid Society is funded by Legal Services Corporation , the Tennessee Bar Foundation, the State of Tennessee, United Way, law firms, private and corporate foundations, and individual donors.
