About us

The Legal Aid Society provides free civil legal assistance to the poorest residents in Washington, DC. We provide legal assistance in the areas of family law (including custody, visitation, child support, and domestic violence issues), landlord-tenant (including defending against Superior Court evictions, as well as Section 8 and DCHA administrative proceedings), and public benefits (TANF, food stamps, Medicaid, General Assistance for Children, or POWER). We also perform law reform work in these areas.
