Standing For Justice

Every day, people wake up and find themselves with nowhere to turn. Sometimes it’s a mother and child. Sometimes a senior, a veteran, or a woman trying to escape abuse. What they need is an advocate to guide them through the civil legal justice system.

That’s what we do at Legal Aid of West Virginia: we stand with vulnerable people and assist them as they seek justice for themselves on critical matters affecting their families, their health, their safety, and their economic security.

Think of the last words of our Pledge of Allegiance: “...and justice for all.” That principle drives our work. Together, with the support of generous donors, volunteers, and community supporters, we fight to keep that promise.
