The LEGAL AID SOCIETY OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA is D.C.'s oldest and largest general civil legal services organization. Since 1932, Legal Aid lawyers have been MAKING JUSTICE REAL — in individual and systemic ways — for persons living in poverty in the District.

Please note that Legal Aid’s SE office at the Anacostia Professional Building (the Big Chair) has moved from Suite LL-1 to Suite 201 on the second floor, across from the elevator. Please click here for more information on our office locations.
