Important Notice

The mere act of contacting the Legal Aid Society of Milwaukee does not establish an attorney-client relationship. Before being accepted as a client you must complete our intake process so that we can: (1) assess your financial eligibility, (2) determine this is a case Legal Aid can handle, and (3) ensure that your case does not pose a conflict of interest with past or present clients. Read our Get Help guide to get started.
