The need has always exceeded the available resources and continues to grow. In the 17-county area served by LAWM there are over 686,000 individuals who live at or below the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines (FPIG) and qualify for free legal assistance.
  • To meet this need:

  • There is one Legal Aid attorney for every 13,000 financially eligible clients in our 17-county area of West Michigan.

  • There are nearly 4,800 private attorneys in the same geographic area (1 for every 143 eligible clients).

Help us level the playing field for those in our community who cannot afford an attorney in order to obtain justice.
