Who We Are
Who We Are
MSLegalServices.org is a guide to free civil legal services for low-income persons and seniors in Mississippi. Here you can locate information on all of the free legal aid programs in Mississippi, including basic eligibility and contact information. We also have links to related sites on the web and legal education documents that give you basic information on a number of legal problems. Our goal is to provide you with user friendly internet access to basic legal information. Additionally, we have included links to useful social services resources in Mississippi. This guide is a free service which is made possible through the generosity of the Legal Services Corporation and our partners and friends from the civil legal and social services community. The web site was created by Pro Bono.net and is maintained by staff at the Mississippi Legal Services Coalition.
Mississippi Legal Services Coalition
The Mississippi Legal Services coalition is a cooperative effort of North Mississippi Rural Legal Services, Mississippi Center for Legal Services, and The Mississippi Volunteer Lawyer Project. The Coalition's goals are to provide high quality legal representation and advice to our clients. Additionally, we provide educational and preventative information to assist our citizenry in avoiding problems. Therefore, we are not only providing fish but we are also teaching our clients how to fish. This is accomplished through distributing information through fact sheets, booklets, manuals, public appearances, community education, community outreach and educational programs.
The LawHelp website platform was created and is maintained by Pro Bono Net (PBN), a national nonprofit founded in 1999 whose mission is to bring the power of the law to all through technology and collaboration. Pro Bono Net's programs equip individuals with solutions to life-changing legal issues and transform how the civil justice sector collaborates to tackle justice problems.
