About SLLS

SLLS serves half of Louisiana's low-income people.

Sometimes we are the only organization that can help.

We cover a lot of ground. There are 22 parishes in our service area.

We have six offices.

We deploy more than 100 attorneys, staff and volunteers.

SLLS helped more than 26,000 people in 2015. The economic impact of these services topped $17.5 million.

SLLS lawyers help people keep family, food, shelter, income, medical care, and personal safety. SLLS only offers legal representation in Louisiana.

SLLS has a long and distinguished history. SLLS began in 1979 with a grant from the Legal Services Corporation. SLLS later merged with New Orleans Legal Assistance Corporation, founded in 1967. SLLS grew. SLLS adapted. SLLS responded to needs arising from epic floods and oil spills. SLLS always meets the challenges of changing times.  

SLLS does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, disability, or age in the delivery of services or in its employment practices.
