Acadiana Legal Service Corporation has announced online assistance for people who need it.

Acadiana Legal Service Corporation, a private, non-profit law firm provides free civil legal aid in 42 parishes throughout Louisiana with offices located in Alexandria, Lafayette, Lake Charles, Monroe, Natchitoches and Shreveport. Providing services to clients at or below 125% of the poverty guideline, the number of people needing legal help, but unable to afford it exceeds the resources of Acadiana Legal Service Corporation.

“We recognize that we do not have enough staff to help everyone in need, so we designed new online modules to expand our services,” said Acadiana Legal Service Corporation Executive Director, Greg Landry. “The online modules are designed to give basic legal information on limited topics, without having to become one of our clients. These new online modules can be found on our website, www.lalaw.org, and we provide even more resources at www.louisianalawhelp.org.”

Acadiana Legal Service Corporation through an innovation and technology grant from the Legal Services Corporation can now provide faster and more convenient access to this information.

Acadiana Legal Service Corporation has four substantive legal groups with each handling different legal matters: Administrative Law Unit; Child in Need of Care Unit; Family Law Unit and Litigation. Find out more at www.la-law.org or by calling 337-237-4320.
