About Legal Aid Foundation of Santa Barbara County

Legal Aid Foundation of Santa Barbara County is a non-profit law firm that provides free legal assistance to Santa Barbara County residents. Our mission is to provide high-quality legal services to low-income people, seniors, and victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking in times of crisis. We also assist “in pro per” residents with navigating the civil legal system. Our work ensures meaningful access to the civil justice system for those with barriers to other sources.

Our vision is a community in which the rights and interests of each person are protected and promoted by the legal system without regard to race, religion, ethnicity, age, gender, sexual identity, status, or wealth.

Since 1959, Legal Aid has provided legal services to those most in need in our community. Our services include the provision of legal information and advice, assistance with the preparation of legal documents, and representation in court proceedings.
