Free civil legal aid for the people of Southeast Louisiana.
Southeast Louisiana Legal Services helps people tackle civil legal issues for a stronger, safer, better life.
SLLS is the region's first line of civil legal aid for the poor. We serve children and families seeking protection from abuse. We help people remain in safe housing. We help those striving to get and keep basic aid to survive. We help those facing foreclosure, and those struggling to recover from the B.P. oil spill. With our help SLLS clients create better communities for everyone. Learn more about us, our people and the 22 parishes we serve.
