Our services are available to residents who live in the communities we serve, meet our income guidelines, and whose requests for help fall within the priorities listed in our programs.

MWLS seeks to make legal services available to as many clients as possible. These services may be limited to advice only because we do not have enough staff to handle all of the requests.

If you are not eligible for our services, we may be able to refer you to other agencies or resources who can help you.

Please note: We do not handle criminal cases.
