What We Do
Community Legal Services (CLS) is dedicated to providing legal assistance, advice or representation; self-help materials and legal education so people can know their rights. We focus on helping survivors of domestic violence; assisting victims of consumer fraud and abuse; protecting tenants from unlawful/unfair practices by landlords; foreclosures; legal problems affecting agricultural workers, wage claims and other employment matters; and federal and state programs affecting peoples' health and economic stability.
We do not handle traffic tickets, criminal cases, child support, or personal injury and other cases in which an attorney may receive a fee.
Who We Are
Community Legal Services is a non-profit Arizona law firm that strives to assure fairness in the justice system no matter how much money you have but provides direct services to individuals falling below 125% of the federal poverty level. We were incorporated in 1952 as a legal aid program organized to promote "equal access to justice for all."
Equal justice for all.
Community Legal Services is committed to eliminating poverty-based inequities in the civil justice system by providing high-quality legal advice, advocacy and assistance to low-income Arizonans.
