Ensuring Access to Justice since 1967

About Us

Founded in 1967, Laurel Legal Services is the sole provider of free civil legal services in six counties within Southwestern Pennsylvania. Laurel Legal strives to deliver high quality legal services to the vulnerable in our community. For individuals who are poverty stricken, we provide extended representation, within program priorities, in local court matters such as housing issues including landlord tenant disputes and mortgage foreclosure prevention, SSI appeals, Unemployment Compensation and Guardianship issues. We also provide legal advice to individuals as "brief services," through telephone consultations. Laurel Legal Services also assists victims of domestic violence in Protection from Abuse actions without regard to income.

Legal work is handled by ten (10) highly qualified full time attorneys, one (1) paralegal and five (5) members of support staff.

Cases handled include family, consumer and housing law and public benefits within program priorities.

Laurel Legal Services is an integral part of the Southwestern Pennsylvania Legal Services Consortium, Legal Services Corporation and PA Law Help.
