Legal Aid of Arkansas, Inc. (LAA), is a nonprofit charitable law firm providing free legal assistance to low-income residents. It is one of two nonprofit legal services programs that work together to provide this assistance throughout Arkansas. The Helena-West Helena office serves four primarily rural counties in the Arkansas Delta: Lee, Monroe, Phillips and St. Francis. The types of cases that we handle include: emergency family matters including divorces involving spousal abuse; housing and land loss; adoptions and guardianships; debt problems; garnishments; public benefits such as SSI, Social Security Disability, food stamps and Medicaid; and legal problems of the elderly. We are actively involved in the community and committed to providing meaningful access to, and representation within the legal system.
