At TexasLawHelp we understand how important teamwork is. We would not be able to provide free and reliable information to over 1.5 million Texans per year without the help of our wonderful project partners.
TexasLawHelp is the cumulative result of a true statewide effort to ensure equal access to the justice system for Texans. Our partners include our team, our funders, Texas Access to Justice Foundation Grantees, Libraries, Law Libraries, Other Non-Profit Organizations, Local Courts, State Government Agencies, and Advocacy Organizations.
We want to say thank you to all our partners for helping make TexasLawHelp possible.
“Equal justice under law is not merely a caption on the facade of the Supreme Court building; it is perhaps the most inspiring ideal of our society. It is one of the ends for which our entire legal system exists . . . it is fundamental that justice should be the same, in substance and availability, without regard to economic status.”
Texas Legal Services Center
The Texas Legal Services Center ("TLSC") administers the day to day functions of the website. The Texas Legal Services Center is a non-profit law office which provides training to poverty law advocates. TLSC also sponsors projects that help individuals in Texas and, in some cases, nationwide.
Travis County Law Library
Since 1983, the Travis County Law Library has helped thousands of Travis County residents find legal information. The Law Library's Self-Help Center provides extended help to residents through their reference attorneys. The library is the primary source of the printout forms available on TexasLawHelp.
TexasLawHelp Advisory Committee
Formed in 2014, the TexasLawHelp Advisory Committee is composed of representatives from legal aid organizations, the Texas Office of Court Administration, Law Libraries, domestic violence shelters, and more. The Advisory Committee provides guidance for the strategic direction of TexasLawHelp.
Texas Access to Justice Foundation Grantees
The Texas Access to Justice Foundation is the leading source of funding for legal aid in Texas. The Foundation was created by the Supreme Court of Texas in 1984. The Foundation is committed to the vision that all Texans, regardless of income, will have equal access to the civil justice system.
There are over 35 Legal Aid organizations that receive funding from the Texas Access to Justice Foundation. These organizations have provided substantial assistance to TexasLawHelp.
These organizations help by drafting legal information articles and toolkits, developing forms, and helping us with various special programs to better serve Texans.
We truly could not provide the variety and depth of information we currently provide without the help of the Texas Access to Justice Foundation Grantees.
This is a Court committed, heart and soul, to the principle that all must have access to justice, including the poor, the most vulnerable among us, if the promises of the rule of law are to remain real and true. This is not a matter of politics, liberal or conservative; it is about good government.
