Who We Are

Operating for more than 60 years, Lone Star Legal Aid (LSLA) is a non-profit law firm that now serves as the fourth largest legal aid organization of its type in the United States.  The firm provides free civil legal help to low-income persons who have immediate needs but cannot afford an attorney.  Headquartered in Houston, the organization operates another 12 branch offices and covers one-third of the state, including 72 counties in the eastern and Gulf Coast regions of Texas, and also four counties of southwest Arkansas, and has an eligible client population of almost 1.5 million at 125% of federal poverty guidelines.  LSLA is the only full-service civil legal aid provider in the region, and it offers advice/legal counsel, brief services, self-help clinics, community legal education, and referrals, as well as full representation in administrative hearings and county, state, and federal courts.  Practice areas include domestic abuse, health care, housing, employment, income maintenance, unlawful trade practices, education, civil rights, and disaster relief.  LSLA also manages special projects, such as food stamp outreach, language access, elder law clinics, and a legal help line.  Cases are accepted on a priority basis, and current priorities include: (1) enhancing and protecting income/economic stability; (2) preserving housing and related needs; (3) improving child outcomes; (4) seeking and maintaining safety, stability, health and well-being; and (5) assisting populations with special vulnerability, such as those who have disabilities, or who are elder, homeless or have limited English language skills.
