Who We Are

For more than 20 years, Philadelphia Legal Assistance (PLA) has provided free civil legal assistance to low-income individuals and families in Philadelphia.

About 30% of the people in Philadelphia live in families with incomes below the federal poverty level.  For those who are low-income, elderly, or disabled, our legal assistance is often crucial for them to protect their homes, their children, their safety, and their livelihood.  PLA is dedicated to helping those who cannot afford legal counsel navigate the legal system and understand and safeguard their rights.

On our web site you can learn about PLAour advocatesour departments, the types of legal problems we handle, and how to get legal assistance.

Brochure describing services available can be found in English and Spanish.

Walk-in intake for new clients is currently suspended indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but PLA has remained opened for intake!
