Scam Alert

We have heard reports of a scam that uses the Legal Aid Society of Milwaukee’s name to ask for money related to court cases.  People throughout the U.S. have received unsolicited phone calls requesting money for a relative’s bail or court costs.  This is a scam.


If you get a such a call, please get the caller’s name, phone number, and any other identifying information before hanging up to call us at (414) 727-5300.  Our receptionist will verify that the call was not from anyone associated with the Legal Aid Society of Milwaukee and get any more information that you can provide.

Happy Holidays

The Legal Aid offices will be closed on Monday, December 24 and Tuesday December 25 for Christmas.  We will reopen on Wednesday.

Our offices will also close on Monday, December 31 and Tuesday, January 1 to celebrate the new year.

We wish everyone safe and happy holidays and we look forward to helping our clients seek justice in the new year.
