Happy 50th Anniversary, Legal Aid!

Since 1959 Legal Aid Foundation has provided free legal assistance in critical civil matters. Our mission is to ensure equal and meaningful access to the civil justice system to Santa Barbara county residents living at or below the poverty level, those facing language or disability barriers, seniors and others living on fixed incomes such as Social Security, and victims of domestic violence and elder abuse. Our services range from the provision of legal information and advice to assistance with the preparation of legal documents and representation in court proceedings. Because of resource limitations, our practice is primarily directed at assisting persons in crisis. We have offices in Santa Barbara, Santa Maria and Lompoc.
