About LawHelp.org

LawHelp.org was created for people living on low-incomes and the legal organizations that serve them. LawHelp.org provides referrals to local legal aid and public interest law offices, basic information about legal rights, court forms, self-help information, court information, links to social service agencies, and more in your state. LawHelp.org includes a network of 25 statewide legal information portals developed using the LawHelp.org platform that served more than 8 million people in 2020. LawHelp.org and state LawHelp sites are maintained by Pro Bono Net in partnership with hundreds of nonprofit legal aid, pro bono, court-based programs and libraries across the country.

The first statewide LawHelp site was launched in New York in 2001 and expanded nationally with support from the Legal Services Corporation and the Open Society Institute. In 2007, LawHelp.org was recognized with a Webby Award for Best Law Site. The Spanish version of LawHelp.org was launched in 2012 in partnership with the Legal Aid Society of Northeastern New York and LawHelp.org/NY, with support from LSC’s Technology Initiative Grant program.
